Originating Calendar CSAMES events
Photographic artist Larry Kanfer, a University of Illinois alumnus in Architecture, has made his passion his career for the past thirty-five years. Widely recognized for his Prairiescapes, he strives to show the connection between people and their environment. Larry calls the 'Inside India' collection his 'dream-of-a-lifetime photographic journey', an adventure that allowed him to explore this relationship between people and their surroundings in a completely foreign place. During the presentation, Larry will describe how he saw life in India, and how he tried to compose photographs that communicated his experiences in two-dimensions. 'Inside India' shows daily life in India: its scenery, its food, and its people. Bright colors and spectacular textures fill these photographs. Spirituality, a theme 'in many of these images, provides constant hope for many impoverished Indians. From the vibrant pinks and blues of women's saris to the dusty reds of the ground they walk on, the colors evoke the welcoming liveliness of the culture. The show of artwork is currently on exhibit at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center, through December 20, 2012.
