Simone Lueck is a Los Angeles based photographer originally from St. Paul, Minnesota. Her work is inspired by Old Hollywood, cultural icons and faded glamour; it is marked by an interest in looking at an American cultural territory colored by notions of identity and performance. Simone's first book Cuba TV was published in August by Mark Batty Publishers, Random House. It was accompanied by solo shows at Kopeikin Gallery (Culver City) and Clic Gallery (NY). Simone's recently completed body of work, The Once and Future Queens, features older women posing as glamorous movie stars. The series has been exhibited internationally in solo shows at Kopeikin Gallery (Culver City), Musée de la Photographie (Charleroi, Belgium), and it is currently up at Open Eye Gallery (Liverpool) in a show curated by Martin Parr.
