Images that Touch the Heart
The Lu Otto Signature Collection is a photography exhibit and a popular visiting site for residents and visitors to Hot Springs Village.
Lu's images have defined the face of the Village for more than a decade. He draws his subjects from nature and his photography celebrates the beauty of the great outdoors. Birds, blooms and butterflies catch his eye. Skylines and sunsets turn his head. Golf greens and fairways, lakeshores and country creeks, old barns and flowering dogwoods, Lu captures them all through the lens on his cameras.

Lu honed in his skills through study, experimentation and practice. He has an eye for his craft and has mastered an array of digital-editing techniques.
His photography has taken Best of Show awards and blue ribbons in multiple venues. His work has been honored by the Arkansas Press Association. His pictures of antique cars are published in the Hilton Head Sports & Classic Car Auction Catalogue. His images hang in private homes, professional and business offices throughout the U.S.
