Lorena Lohr’s Beautiful Photos of Memphis and the Midwest

Belle Hutton, AnOther, December 5, 2019

When I speak to Lorena Lohr on the phone, she has just arrived in Paris, where she’s been renting a home, from London, where her darkroom is. Our conversation, however, is about the photographs Lohr has taken in the United States – a country she has been documenting for the last decade – which are going on show at Cob Gallery this week, in an exhibition titled Tonight Lounge. “I’ve been going back and forth from Paris to London on the bus – which is something I’m very used to,” the British-Canadian photographer tells me, referencing her preferred way of journeying around the US: by bus and train.
