Larry Kanfer Photography

Bio / Description: 

Photographic artist Larry Kanfer challenges himself to find the subtle beauty in the everyday. The Associated Press praises his work, saying, “Kanfer’s gift is that he can endow the ordinary landscape… with an almost magical sense of beauty.”

After receiving his degree in architecture from the University of Illinois in 1979, he opened his first photography gallery and studio here in Champaign, IL. Most well known for his Prairiescapes®, he has brought acclaim to the Midwest through award-winning calendars and original artwork capturing the beauty of the region. Kanfer has also created a variety of other major collections including Cityscapes, University of Illinois, Europe, China and now India. To date, seven coffee table books of Larry Kanfer images have been published, with "Chicagoscapes" being published by the University of Illinois Press this Fall. Larry Kanfer created the Veterans Day One-on-One Appreciation event through his Rotary Club and is currently growing this Veterans Day event to other Rotary clubs throughout Illinois. And he is proud to call central Illinois his home.
