|Gallery Talk: Portraits of People I Will Never Know|
Event Type: Library Adult Program|
Start Time: 6:15 PM
End Time: 6:35 PM
Meet Art in the Library exhibitor, Larry Simon. Larry takes his inspiration from seemingly everyday objects, surfaces and scenes that are transformed into painterly short stories when given the chance. He often works with a blend of soft and sharp focus to create a composed narrative shrouded in a sense of the unknown: the Inner World that resides in our subconscious, a place where we cannot fill in all the blanks. Larry blends his instincts for street photography with his love of abstraction to tell compelling, often solitudinous tales through the lenses of his rangefinder camera, without zoom or tripod, and free of filters or post manipulation. He is mostly self-taught. A constant roamer, Larry Simon is based in Chicago.
Just drop in.
