Larry Reitz

Portfolio Categories: All Festival Artists.

Larry has been showing photographic images at Art and Craft shows for about 20 years. His images have won several awards including first placements in New England Camera Club and Land Trust competitions. Larry’s work can be seen at several outdoor art festivals including prestigious shows in Mystic, Old Saybrook, West Hartford, Niantic and Stamford and Essex, Connecticut. Shows in Rhode Island include Virtue in Westerly and the Narragansett Fine Art festival.

His work is not done in a studio, but outside in the open air.  Most of the subject matter is supplied by nature.

Larry started with traditional Ciba Chrome prints developed in his darkroom and several years ago graduated to printing with a large format Epson ink jet printer.   The medium on which he prints has also changed from traditional papers to now printing nearly everything on canvas.  Ink jet prints have evolved to the point where one can expect to view the pictures for a lifetime without noticeable fading.  When asked if his images are enhanced, the simple reply is: “some are and some are not.”  He shows what he thinks look like the best version of the image captured.

He is also an accomplished woodworker and frequently displays hand turned writing instruments along with the photographic prints.  No two of these are ever the same and there is a receptive audience for those who would like to have a unique pen for their own use or to purchase one as a gift for someone special.
