Photographer with autism Artist of the Month at Affinity

stpaulskylinewebAffinity Plus Federal Credit Union in Minneapolis has named photographer Larry Mack Artist of the Month. Mack has selected 14 of his photography images to share through a display at the Affinity Plus branch in January.

Mack, who has been interested in photography since he was 14, said his images are inspired by “whatever comes up”, and his display includes prints of trains, cityscapes, and nature.  Mack also believes his photography skill is enhanced by the autism diagnosis he received in 2012.

“I am not an autistic artist; I’m an artist with high functioning autism,” Mack said. “I have a capability and see things a little differently.”

“I am not an autistic artist; I’m an artist with high functioning autism,” Mack said. “I have a capability and see things a little differently.”

Mack hopes that the autism community is inspired and motivated by his art.“I want people with autism to see this is what they can do – to make the most of what they have. If I can inspire one, that will be a success; if I can inspire more, it will be a miracle.”

Mack’s photography exhibition is open to the public at Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union, 2520 University Ave. SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414, throughout January. His images are for sale, and dollars donated above listed prices will be donated to the Autism Society of Minnesota to support programs and services for the local autism community.
