Larry joins Chris and David for a chat about how his photography sits alongside his career and charity work, the influences on his photographic style and his two self published books.  

He considers himself to be a humanitarian documentary photographer and storyteller and, using his optometry and photography as a platform, he raises awareness on social issues and the challenges people are encountering in a world facing rapid urbanisation and globalisation. His intimate images show a high regard and respect for his subjects, as well as the time he takes to observe and understand before shooting.
