Beyond the Glance…the Legacy of Carol's Vision
Tower Gallery
Featuring work by: Carol Hendon

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 3, to Sat, Oct 31 2009

At the tender age of 12 Carol Hendon's heart was stolen. Not by the boy next door, or the latest teen idol, but by the Kodak Instamatic. From that moment on the medium of photography and the power of the still image fascinated her.

Carol thrived on using the camera's lens to reveal images that might otherwise be overlooked or go unseen. She cultivated her craft on film, yet embraced the digital age of photography. Melding film and technology in her digital darkroom, Carol explored the multi-layers of her creative vision. On October 29, 2008, following a two-year battle with esophageal and lung cancer, Carol, 54, passed away at home surrounded by love and the photos that live on as a tribute to her talent.

It is the hope of Don Shomaker, her beloved partner of 23 years, that through showing her works Carol's unique vision will live on inspiring others to look past the obvious to the beauty that surrounds them.

Whether shooting an intimate portrait, a celebration, the beauty of nature or a product for marketing, Carol invited her audience take a moment and go beyond a glance to find something in her photographs that moved their spirit.
