Artist Bio

Larry Hirshowitz

Larry Hirshowitz moved to Los Angeles from South Africa in 1991. Observing the starkly divided culture of Apartheid, South Africa gave Hirshowitz an eye for the beauty, diversity, and tension of human existence. His subjects range from actor Ben Kingsley and film director David Lynch to memorial murals in the heart of South Central and has chronicled both the comfortable and the afflicted for New York Times Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, Sydney Morning Herald Magazine, Capital Records, Fast Company, LA Weekly and many other publications. He also works on commercial clients on ad campaigns that showcase Hirshowitz’s dreamy full-frame imagery.

 

Among his many projects, Hirshowitz has served over 20 years as the resident photographer on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” where he continues to document a legendary line – up of visiting musicians from Elvis Costello and Beck to a then-obscure band named Coldplay.

When I was 21, I ran into this guy that told me he had gotten his degree in photography. I never knew you could get a degree in something like that, so I took the courses and really enjoyed it. Since I started studying it, I just absolutely loved it. It felt natural.
