Landscape Photographer Larry Burton Dies

August 17, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

“Larry Burton earned degrees in electrical engineering, physics and pure mathematics, then decided he’d rather earn his living outdoors. For 35 years he did, hauling his 4-by-5 camera — one of the old boxlike cameras with a cloth to cover the photographer’s head — around the state and its two national parks, taking pictures that would grace many a Montana, Glacier and Yellowstone calendar.” This tribute by Vince Devlin of the Missoula Montana Missoulian includes an example of Burton’s characteristically dramatic photograpy.
