Larry’s Eyes, Inc.

My Approach My approach is to see and experience new cultures through photography. It is thrilling for me to live outside the norm of travel and visit remote regions — collecting and savoring these experiences for the rest of my life. My Story Every explorer has a beginning, and my journey began on my first trip doing charity work in Cambodia in 2006. My communications began by sending emails to a few close friends and my family. Over the years, my audience has grown to over 200 enthusiastic individuals who actively engage with me and my journal entries. It is through these journal entries, countless people have told me that they, too, have been inspired to do charitable work — some in far-away places, but most right in their own backyards.
