The photos of Chiles Larson ’53 will be displayed in an exhibition titled “Wisdom, Wonderment and Humor: a Retrospective of the Work of Chiles Larson” in Swem Library April 5 to May 28.

Larson worked as a staff photographer for The Virginian-Pilot, where his father served as an editor. Larson also worked as a photographer during the Korean War after enlisting in the Air Force in 1951. He returned to the College to finish his degree and worked as a photographer for Colonial Williamsburg.

Larson has worked with National Geographic, the Chrysler Museum and Sports Illustrated. He was commissioned in 1967 to take photos for a book on the Peruvian Central Railroad.

Larson wrote and photographed the book “Virginia’s Past Today,” which was used by the Virginia Historical Society in a state-wide exhibition. In 2008, he also published “Barboursville Vineyards: Crafting Great Wines Inspired by Spirits of the Past.”
