Lawrence D’Attilio, nicknamed Larry, is an award-winning international fine art photographer, author, workshop leader and human rights champion. He is based in Los Angeles after pursuing his photography art in Milwaukee for 50 years. His first public success was being awarded “Best Photographer” at the Lakefront Festival of the Arts the first year they had that award. Soon after he became recognized for his seminal project about Milwaukee’s industrial decline, “Urban Inversions,” a permanent 40-artwork exhibit of that 1970-1996 project was recently installed in Pegasus Partner’s Ltd. new office building in Mequon.

His many other projects over the years covered women’s issues, the environment, composited abstracts, and a still-ongoing project about the culture of Vietnam. That project, and his almost sold out published book on Vietnam, “The Soul of Vietnam,” is a result of his living in Vietnam for 54 months spread over 12 years.

D’Attilio is also celebrated for being one of the first art dealers for fine art photography in the U.S., known as the Bathhouse Gallery on Jefferson Street, begun by Roald Bostrom and Larry. That gallery’s first solo exhibit was by Ansel Adams, their photography teacher.  It was also Adams’s earliest commercial gallery sales success with many of his 16×20 prints sold to Milwaukee residents for $150 each.

Larry’s numerous solo exhibits have been in Italy, Vietnam, Malaysia, Spain and the U.S. He has taught photography over the years and is a founding father of CoPA since conceiving and sponsoring, with restauranteur Mary Krimmer, CoPA’s beginning known as “The Schmooze.”
