In the page's words:

The series "The Omega Suites," factual photographs of execution rooms in U.S. correctional facilities, made the American artist Lucinda Devlin famous in the 1990s. In 2001, the images caused a sensation at the Venice Biennale. As early as 1992, one of the motifs had attracted attention through the controversial campaign of an Italian fashion label. "The Omega Suites" is one of the nine series of works shown in Frames of Reference plus a video - the first comprehensive show of the artist's work in Europe.

Lucinda Devlin, who is one of the representatives of the New Color Photography movement, predominantly finds her motifs in interior spaces that serve specific functions. She travels mainly in the USA, but also in Germany and other countries. Since the mid-2000s, landscape themes have been added.

Encouraged by a DAAD grant, Lucinda Devlin shot the series "Water Rites" (1999-2002) in German spas. These photographs provide insight into facilities, some of them long-established, that serve both well-being and healing and convalescence. The series "Subterranea" (since 1980), on the other hand, whose images use artificial light and thus produce a special colorfulness, presents caves and tunnels that have been made accessible and usable. That Lucinda Devlin does not focus solely on humans is evident in the series "Habitats" (since 1985), in which she looks at zoological enclosures and aquariums that are modeled on the natural habitats of animals. In addition, from 2007 onwards, in the series "Field Culture", it is the products and equipment of industrial agriculture to which she devotes herself.

Since 2010, Lucinda Devlin has also been working on formally rigorous landscape studies of Lake Huron in Michigan and the American salt lakes and salt fields in Utah.
