Lawrence Feir
Issue 2, Winter 2015

has been involved in the arts most of his life. After graduating high school, he studied painting and sculpture at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. In 1987, he opened a jewelry store in Huntington, New York, where he honed his skills as a silver smith. Two years later, he relocated to North Carolina to study photography.

As the son of an aeronautical engineer, he had always been passionate about aviation, and got a lucky-break assignment photographing an airliner at the Greensboro airport. He soon landed a position with Airways International magazine, becoming their chief photographer two years later. Feir has traveled the world, photographing aircraft for Boeing, Airbus Industries, Rolls Royce, Midwest Airlines, and others.

In the wake of the 9/11 disaster, with airlines going out of business and others in dire financial condition, Feir put down his cameras and returned to a different art form, sculpture. He remains a sculptor to this day, working mostly in steel and other metals. His pieces range from small figurines to large-scale kinetic works, with his prime focus on life-size figurative forms of welded steel.
