The Edge

After posting four weeks of Recent Work abstractions that were shot indoors, I decided to get out and look for something new. I unexpectedly found this photo opportunity on my way to shoot some portraits.
     The area is new to me and I saw a lot of potential for other images. For now, this was the quick shot that I grabbed before starting the people pics.


The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards
online exhibition, Interregional, gave Honorable Mention to my image Wyoming Bible.

Recent Work - 09.2011 Part 4

Orange Tights

The past few weeks of recent work have revealed abstractions of objects, reinterpreted as images of art. Orange Tights is another opportunity to explore visual aspects in terms of re-identification.

Recent Work - 09.2011 Part 3

Seven Solutions

When it comes to my photography, I'm all over the place. I don't have any one particular style or concentrate on any given subject matter. I prefer to approach my art with an enthusiasm for anything that peaks my interest. This medium is still very new to me and I have an appetite for exploring the possibilities that I let slip through my hands when I was in art school. For now, the world around me is my classroom.
     To see a more comprehensive collection of my work, go to and browse through the portfolios.

Recent Work - 09.2011 Part 2

Abstraction 7/9

Creating work that I like, takes me in many directions. Most often, I try to throw out conventional thinking and look for something that I didn't know was there. I enjoy this process of discovery and was pleased to find and shoot the above photographs that were combined into one image titled Abstraction 7/9.

Recent Work - 09.2011 Part 1

Giacometti's People (I) 
© Larry Torno

Giacometti's People (I) is a new image that sprung from a moment of "seeing". I saw the idea for a photo, watched the light come upon the scene and knew it was something I wanted to keep. 
     I previewed this photo with my friend Lynn, who made the best comment; "I like that I don't know what they are which leaves the imagination free to choose what to see."
     Thanks Lynn, I couldn't have said it better myself.
     Giacometti's People (I) is the first image in a triptych of photos.

Let me know if you like this new approach and I'll post some other images from the series.
