I have always been taken with Leonard Cohen's songs. The quote has been taken from one of my favorites entitled "Anthem." The image is my homage to Mr. Cohen and his brilliant lyrics.Buy This Print

Larry is a retired dentist whose interest in photography has been ongoing for more than 50 years. In 1975, he took the Grand Prize in the Boston Globe Photography Contest for hs photograph "Of Countries and Generations.
He is a semi-professional photographer who has had photographs published in People, Variety, Star and Rolling Stone Magazines as well as several newspapers. Larry has worked as a stringer for the Boston Globe, on-set photographer for the Catherine Crier Show on Court TV and the Jane Pauley Show on NBC. He also hosted a radio call-in "Ask the Doctor" show in Boston in the late 1990s on WBZ Radio.
Photography, in general, reproduces only what can be seen. Digital art has opened a new realm of interpretive images combining both photographic reproduction with artistic imagination. Interpretive images are as much "real" photography as pointillism, surrealism, cubism, da-da and the like are real art.
Digital art is personal - it either affects emotionally the viewer or it does not. Art is not dependent on a curator's opinion of what constitutes excellence, it is, however, dependent on the viewer's.
What am I trying to say? I guess it's that art is personal. The one image that is both technically perfect and also captures the soul of the viewer is an elusive goal. But still images that defy description are a necessary part of the evolution of an art form and should be encouraged and seriously considered. Just my opinion, of course.
