About Larry Kanfer:
A longtime resident of Champaign-Urbana, Larry graduated from the University of Illinois in 1979. Immediately afterwards, he opened his own photography gallery, which he has maintained since then. With a career spanning over thirty years, Larry has had the rare opportunity of making his art his profession.
Larry's works are shown in galleries, museums, and private and corporate collections across the United States. Praised by ARTnews, the Associated Press, and the Washington Post, he is primarily known as the pre-eminent photographer of Midwestern Prairiescapes. This collection has garnered comparisons to the works of Eliot Porter and Ansel Adams. His portfolios also contain major collections of other American landscapes and cityscapes, along with collections featuring Southern Europe, China, and India. To date, Larry has published six critically acclaimed books and award-winning calendars for the past thirteen years.
