Larry Brenden searches the Western United States to find compelling natural landscape images. His work conveys greater intimacy than typical landscape photographs and explores nature’s gorgeous color palette. Brenden says: “I am always looking, but more specifically, I am looking to photograph light, color, and form. To me, photography is all-consuming. A demanding discipline which entails my senses, intellect, and emotion, it is at once my passion and my spiritual base.”
“Using the camera as a tool, my intention is to quietly unveil nature’s secrets with integrity and capture an image true to the scene as first observed. Through the lens I seek to reveal the grandeur of the natural world, uncover her subtleties, show her impressive power, and expose her delicate side. Often, I examine a scene and decipher symmetrical patterns in the seemingly chaotic environment. Recording light and form is at once a fascination and a mystery. It is my goal to present well-crafted, un-doctored, aesthetic prints of the world’s beautifully wild places both to preserve and with full intent to protect.“
A former design engineer in the computer industry, Larry has spent the last decade as a respected photographer of the natural scene.
