Mission and Purpose
Founded by Pro Photographer Larry Pollock, The Light Foundry is created for the purpose of creating photographic Art and to teach the skills of photography as well as speaking and presenting.
An Artist Painting With Light, I will focus on the use and understanding of both ambient and artificial light in the creation of simple to complex photographic subjects.
Though the medium of digital photography I will create images of beauty, images that provoke thought and contemplation and even positive action.
Though Workshops I will help others explore and master the art of light from the simple to the complex, in studio and on location.
Specific photographic projects will help highlight subjects I feel need to be highlighted and instilled into the minds of the viewers. With the world filling up with trash, plastics, chemicals and more, I will take the opportunity to create beautiful and thought provoking images.
Sometimes Art is simply for Arts sake. Other times Art is meant to be thoughtful, grating or even shocking. Great Art invokes a feeling that stays with the viewer. Love it or hate it, Art and Artist(s) can help the world to understand, discuss and ultimately find solutions to the issue the human race currently faces.
Art should not be hemmed in by restrictions. Art is and should be pure expression with no boundaries!
EARTH without ART is just EH!
- Trash Planet – The current and looming issues of too much trash and contamination of our world
- The Modern Pin-up – Current fashion and beauty juxtaposed against the past
- The Black and White Project – For the love of all things BW from landscapes to Studio
- The Film Project – Going back to our roots shooting film and developing it ourselves
This vision and associated projects are bigger than one person. I look forward to collaborating with other Artists and Photographers to create amazing visions, teach others and have fun!
Though I have my own artistic vision and goals, I remain open to opportunities to create with others and let The Light Foundry evolve.
