The camera obscura (literally, "dark room") is one of the oldest optical technologies, the principle of which holds when light passes through a small aperture into a darkened chamber and an inverted image will appear on the wall opposite the hole. Lutter hangs black-and-white photographic paper on the wall to capture the image. The resulting pictures are one-of-a-kind paper negatives. In 2001, the MoCP commissioned Lutter to turn rooms in Chicago office buildings into camera obscuras and photograph Chicago's downtown.
