Larry Halff is a visual artist exploring how we perceive place through abstract photographic images of architectural sites. His work investigates the interaction between perception and technology through both subject of the work—framed moments of human-made environments—and production process, creating analog silver gelatin prints from digitally captured images.

Raised by two cognitive research psychologists, he discovered photography as a way to connect with the outside world at the age of 6, a tool which still forms the basis of his artistic practice. He studied Sociology and Cultural Anthropology, with a focus on video ethnography, and then worked in social software as the Internet blossomed before pursuing art in 2017.

He currently resides in the Washington, DC area with his husband, Randy, and their rescue dog, Betty.
