There are two separate sections for images. The Gallery section (shown here), allows the artist to group and subgroup images. Users have two viewing options: a pop-out menu when clicking the image, or entry to another page that displays the image with its associated EXIF metadata.

Lars Strother is an academic in the visual sciences and a self-made artist. This site focuses on his exceptional collection of photography. One common theme underlying his work is the use of "heavy croppings," whereby photos may be cropped in unexpected ways and framed through the use of borders that illuminate different perspectives. This theme is often complemented through Macro-photography and a wide array of Gaussian blurs and image-softening techniques. The site was created to showcase this and future work through its organization in various galleries and slideshows.
