Larry Silver is a renowned photographer. His images hang in museums around the world.
Since 1973, he’s been a Westporter. He’s spent all those years documenting life in and around town.
Now — 45 years after moving here — he’s compiled some of his favorite photos into a short video.
“Larry Silver’s Connecticut” includes many familiar scenes: Compo Beach, Sherwood Island, Longshore, roads and barns. There’s his iconic “shower”shot — taken next to Joey’s — and one of the fondly named “Dragon Lady,” a beach fixture for many years.
There are also photos of nearby towns, and many city scenes too.
“The best years of my life have been spent in Westport,” Larry says.
Now he’s shared them with all of us.
