Larry Bell is a self-taught Photographic Artist whose main interest is Fine Art. A history exploring many aspects of photography has allowed Larry to build a diverse and creative portfolio. This pathway has also seen his skills extend into the technical side of photo re-touching and manipulation, which allows his style to be constantly evolving.
My favored method of working is with female models to create images that provoke thought about the complexities of the human psyche. The portrait and female form have been an inspiration for Artists throughout Time. The mystery of Women has proved to be an enduring challenge when trying to create a new and unique vision. The images are created through trial, error and instinct, reflecting a journey of discovery of myself and the subject. A primary influence in my life was the sudden death of my mother when I was 14, which is often subconsciously reflected in my work. By nature, I would class myself as an instinctive photographer whose final works reflect a Painterly style. In summary, the motivation for my work is to find beauty in the ordinary and subvert it to my own personal vision. My hope is to leave a body of work I can be proud of.
