By and large photographer Larry McIntosh is known for his work with The MAD House, his advertising and design collaborative that traveled with him from Texas to northwest Florida. Although McIntosh is MAD House’s project and sales manager, he picked up photography skills from the creative teams who taught him the ins and outs of composition and lighting.
Though he wasn’t the one behind the lens at work, he was always watching and taking ideas home to his personal camera.
“Every day is a learning day for me,” says McIntosh, who is showing his photography for the first time at JOBA Gallery in Apalachicola co-owned by artists Jenny Odom and Beth Appleton.
As McIntosh dips his toes into the world of photographic arts, he hopes the exhibition, which runs through Dec. 19, might have people look at him in “A Different Light.” This is both the exhibition’s title and a nod to his black and white photographic style.
“I squeeze this in with my advertising business, so I’m not sure a lot of people know how much time I spend on it or even that I do it,” says McIntosh. “To have Jenny and Beth include me among their works is truly flattering.”
His move to Apalachicola is what transitioned photography for him from a sometime hobby into a new creative outlet. The light and colors of the area spoke to McIntosh. He is always on the hunt for unique landscapes featuring older structures.
