The French website Le Journal de la Photographie, posted a mini portfolio of images from my 2009 exhibition When is a Doll, not a Doll. See the post here. Le Journal has featured my photos three other times in the past, including the post on Found Landscapes in 2011 seen here.

Ken Allen Studios in New York, craftsmen of fine art printing, recently selected my Found Landscapes series as a top 10 finalist in their online Call for Entries.

During the month of June, I revisited my Letterbox and Found Landscapes series and explored the possibilities of extending the collections with newly created photos.

Creating a photograph that you want to keep and exhibit is only part of the business of art. Getting your work shown is a time-consuming effort that involves, among other things, research, archiving, management, expenses, acceptance and rejection.
     For the first six months of this year, the Larry Torno Photo numbers are as follows: 46 photographs have been submitted to 10 Calls for Entries, resulting in 13 images shown in 5 exhibitions, with 18 images in 3 shows still awaiting decisions. It's a lot of work but it's what I want to do.

I took my turtle to the playground today but as it turns out, it's for pedestrian use only. We were very disappointed and walked home slowly; our heads hung low.

See you at the next posting on Sunday, August 4. Of course, you're welcome to drop by as often as you like and please pass the link on to anyone you think will appreciate my blog and photos. Thank you for visiting

  1. Larry: I don't comment on any blog, usually. You and the art you now produce is far from what I knew you to do when we met years ago. You inspire me.
    Thank you, Friend!

  2. What a wonderful comment from someone who gave me a big boost years ago when I needed it most. I'll never forget it. THANKS Annie!
