Since 1977, Larry Torno has worked in the graphic design business as a designer, art director, and creative director for companies large and small, from Fortune 500 to Not-for-Profit.
In 2004, a trip to Carmel, California changed everything. He was surrounded by the work of Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston, and a friend's extensive collection of his personal work of the Great American West. It all awakened in him a personal dream – to elevate his love of photography to the level of creative expression that Torno finds in his design. He bought a camera and started shooting.
Today, Torno’s photographic work is an exploration of ideas and observations. He works for the moment when what is in front of him transforms into something not seen before.
