by Larry French
«I have always been drawn to the simplicity or, perhaps a better word, the purity of straightforward black and white photography. For whatever reason it seems to fit me. I photograph the solitary, the places, objects and empty spaces people leave behind when they are gone. The black and white image is, at least for me, the only way to tell their stories. The stories people leave behind, untold.»
