Larry Scott is an unusual photographer in that he’s created extraordinary images from both sides of the camera. For more than two decades, while working as an iconic international supermodel, Larry has quietly captured—through his own lens—stunning memories of people, places and nature. Through this website, he shares his images with the world.
Describing his style as “anti-fashion,” Larry’s photography aims to strip away magnificence and find timeless beauty in the mundane. Among Larry’s inspirations are photographers Gary Winogrand, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, stylist Diana Vreeland and the musical genre of jazz. It was through jazz that Larry was motivated to put his photos together to form visual narratives.
As a model, Larry has worked for many leading designers including Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler and Claude Montana. Moreover, Larry has modeled for Armani Exchange, Gap, H&M, Banana Republic, Nine West, David Yurman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Faconnable, Ermenegildo Zegna, among many others. Larry gained further recognition as a model by becoming the face of Acqua di Gio from 1997 to 2007, a ten-year fragrance campaign that became one of the longest-running print ads of all time.
Larry’s modeling career has taken him to all the major modeling capitals of the world, including Milan, Paris, London and New York. During the day, he’d pose in front of cameras in brightly-lit studios, were he’d observe various photography techniques. And at night, he’d walk the unfamiliar streets taking photos of his own.
As a photographer, Larry has drawn the attention and praise of fashion industry legends Karl Lagerfeld and Giovanni Gastel. As he continues to book choice jobs, Larry plans to make photography his career, promoting his art through magazines and international exhibitions.
