Larry Silver Goes To Harvard

Larry Silver has been taking photos since he was a teenager.

Finally — at 83 years old — he’s gotten into Harvard.

The prestigious university’s Fogg Museum of Art has acquired 20 of the world-renowned photographer’s images, for their permanent collection.

Westport is prominently featured in Silver’s work. That’s no surprise: He’s lived here for 45 years.

Among the photos headed to Harvard is “Jogger” (1979).

Larry Silver’s famous 1979 photo is headed to Harvard.

Another is “Shower at the Beach.”

Silver continues to photograph scenes all around Westport — except for his shower series.

A complaint by someone concerned that he had his camera at Westport’s iconic outdoor public shower led town officials to tell Silver: no more photography there.
