The series of images were made at Casa Luis Barragán, the home of the modernist Mexican architect. Luisa Lambri captured a square window in the house, arranging the Dutch shutters in slightly different positions. The bright light that filters through produces cross-like configurations that have distinctly religious and Modernist overtones. Her large, mostly black-and-white images comment on the medium of photography and the legacy of Modernist abstraction through the work of other artists and architects.
