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).
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.
