Los Angeles-based Larry Alan’s artistic credo is simple: ‘I take pictures.’ And what pictures!
His portfolio contains a curious mixture of glamor, clean backgrounds and mess.
Obviously pin-up is one of his influences. You might want to bear in mind that he shoots men as well as women, in the same style, but there’s no doubt about the gender here.
Many of his pictures are distinguished by a sense of humor.
His advice for would-be photographers? Take risks!
If you’re not quite that courageous, I guess the model can always do it herself…
One of Larry’s large-scale projects, due for exhibition later this year, involves putting a series of models up against a wall and telling them to do whatever they want. The result is a remarkable and stylish series of images of ‘people being people’.
The name of the project is Blue. Can you guess why?
Even though the model here is having her bottom turned pink…
Pink is also the best that one model could hope for when she took her turn in front of the Blue wall. And if she was out of luck, it might end up being red. The lady who’s at risk is Lauren Perry, also known as Lucky Zombie.
Also involved was model, performer and America’s Got Talent contestant Maeghan McKenny, otherwise known as Maeghan Machine.
Here’s Lauren on the day of her Blue shoot.
And now Maeghyn joins her.
Apparently Lauren was a bad girl. So, as she said herself, it’s lucky Maeghan was around to punish her!
