LARRY TORNO

American, lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri


Since 1977, I've worked in the graphic design business as a designer, art director and creative director for companies large and small, from Fortune 500 to Not-for-Profit.

In 2004, a trip to Carmel, California changed everything. I was surrounded by the work of Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston and a friend's extensive collection of his personal work of the Great American West. It all awakened in me a personal dream – to elevate my love of photography to the level of creative expression that I find in my design. I bought a camera and started shooting.

Today, my photographic work is an exploration of ideas and observations. I work for the moment when what is in front of me transforms into something I hadn't seen before.

 

New work exhibiting at HOUSKA GALLERY.
