Black Mask: 1967

Good morning. Funny things happen when you get out of bed and you go to your computer. Questions come along, facts and fantasies, information and energy of all kinds. A request came in the other day from a professor of Art History at Columbia University, asking if I had photographed a protest group called Black Mask on their way to Wall St in the winter of 1967. It turns out that I had. Their emblem for the march was “Wall St is War St.” So while we have no protests moving towards Wall St in this day and age, I think that this Dadaistic manifestation of protest makes as much sense in the summer of 2010 as it did in the winter of 1967.

Enjoy the pictures.
Honor the sentiment.

The Unspoken Word Within Me

Enamored: An exhibition about women featuring Larry’s work at the Museum of Modern Art Carlos Merida in Guatemala City.

When Adriana Teressa, publisher of Visura Magazine, approached us about making an edit of Larry’s work for a show about women the task seemed daunting. How does one shave down fifty years of work into fourteen images? What exactly about women was she looking for, the independent woman who shows her prowess in the work force, the femme fetal from cinema, or something more innate and unsaid within women? When Adriana sent over this statement the images that needed to be in the show stood out clearly:

Enamored is about the unspoken word in a woman, the force within which ties our strength with our passion, intelligence with our body and healing power with belief; that which makes us conquerors and fearless without always having to retaliate. On the contrary, many times a strength, that is revealed in our silence.

I want to address that force that connects me with woman all over the world, transcending social, cultural and economical barriers. The feminine within. The force within. One that crucifies and crowns. Through images, let this intangible thing become tangible for an instant. Maybe this may inspire change.”
