Larry Kanfer Photography Gallery, Champaign

5.0
#2 of 7 in Museums in Champaign-Urbana
Midwest-based photographic artist Larry Kanfer challenges himself to find the subtle beauty in the everyday. The Associated Press praises his work, saying “Kanfer’s gift is that he can endow the ordinary landscape… with an almost magical sense of beauty.”

After receiving his degree in architecture from the University of Illinois in 1979, he opened his first photography gallery and studio in Champaign. Mr. Kanfer’s training in architecture taught him to view his surroundings analytically as well as artistically. He has used those skills to create photographs that speak to viewers on an emotional level through their composition and content.

While he is most well known for his Prairiescapes®, he has also created a variety of other major collections including Cityscapes, European and China. He also has an extensive University of Illinois collection showcasing the beauty of his Alma Mater. Five critically acclaimed collections of his images have been published and a sixth book, Barns of Illinois, is scheduled for release in fall 2009. Each year he publishes an award-winning Prairiescapes calendar as well as a University of Illinois calendar.

  • Really outstanding capture of the beauty of the environment in central plains. Employees knowledgeable, pleasant and efficient. Friendly place! Deserves more attention.
  • An elegant, comfortable art gallery and studio loaded with a lifetime of Larry Kanfer's photographic artwork. Several themed galleries to look over - loaded with original work worth owning. Staffed by friendly, professionals. I shouldn't have waited so long to visit. I'll be visiting again.
