Larry Hirshowitz moved to Los Angeles from South Africa in 1991. Observing the starkly divided culture of apartheid South Africa gave Hirshowitz an eye for the beauty, diversity and tension of urban existence. His subjects range from actor Ben Kingsley and film director David Lynch to memorial murals in the heart of South Central, and he has chronicled both the comfortable and the afflicted for the New York Times Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, ESPN Magazine, Sydney Morning Herald Magazine, LA Weekly and many other publications. He also works with commercial clients on ad campaigns that showcase Hirshowitz’s dreamy full-frame imagery.
Among his many projects, Hirshowitz served for seven years as photographer in residence on KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” where he documented a legendary line-up of visiting musicians from Elvis Costello and Beck to a then-obscure band named Coldplay.
