Artist's Statement

Photography is, for me, a means of self-expression and to that extent I am acutely aware that “the camera points in both directions”.
 


While I shoot very divergent subjects in both black and white and color I find that I am increasingly drawn to my black and white roots and portraiture.
 


As I compose an image, I try as best as I can to be mindful of and sensitive to lines, shadows and shapes. These elements contribute mightily to the nuance and moodiness of chiaroscuro that I am eager to capture .... I am especially fond of using subtle ambient light. When using available light I am challenged to wring as much poignant nuance from an image as I can.
 


It seems to me that there is something about well-composed black and white images that compel the viewer to linger and absorb the subject matter more completely as sometimes color images can be distracting.
 


If those who view my work relate to or are moved by my approach to artful photography then I am delighted. However, I have come to understand that if the art gives joy to the artist that it pleases others is pure gravy.

Larry
