Mission and Purpose
Founded by Pro Photographer Larry Pollock, The Light Foundry is created to create photographic Art and teach the skills of photography and speaking and presenting.
An Artist Painting With Light, I will focus on the use and understanding both ambient and artificial light in the creation of simple to complex photographic subjects.
Through digital photography, I will create images of beauty, images that provoke thought and contemplation, and even positive action.
Through Workshops, I will help others explore and master the Art of light from the simple to complex, Studio, and location.
Specific photographic projects will help highlight subjects I feel need to be highlighted and instilled into the viewers’ minds. 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 Art’s 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.
Restrictions should not hem in Art. Art is and should be a pure expression with no boundaries!
EARTH without ART is just EH!
- Trash Planet – The present 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 more significant than one person. I look forward to collaborating with other Artists and Photographers to create unique visions, teach others and have fun!
Though I have my artistic vision and goals, I remain open to creating with others and letting The Light Foundry evolve.
