ARTIST BIOGRAPHY STATEMENT FOR LARRY BRAUN
I am a fine art photographer living in Benton, Missouri. The focus of my work is done outdoors in small towns, state parks, and historic districts of Missouri.
Using my own digital work flow, I add a texture to my photographic images. For me this creates my own unique artistic interpretation of my subject, which some describe as adding a 'painterly feel' to the images.
My art has been in multiple exhibitions, including Margaret Harwell Art Museum in Poplar Bluff, the transition space of the Crisp Museum, the Southeast Missouri Art Council and the Sikeston Depot Museum.
My art work has also been featured in the Southeast Missourian, Missouri Life, and the magazine, The Best Years. My photographs have been used on book covers, phonebook covers and by online magazines.
I have also created small decorative 'bird houses' which feature my photographs of historic homes and well known structures in miniature. I photograph all four sides of the structure and then reduce the image to fit my template for the bird houses.
I also share my images in Facebook and on my website; larrybraunphotography.com
