People and sweet dreams are the themes behind Rita Henry's images. Motivated by a perfect storm of events: deaths, births, weddings and reunions, the photographic tradition of portraiture is explored, as well as, symbolic images reflecting dreams. Each image is searching to become a relevant piece of a puzzle. Henry began in 1989 pursuing photography as an art form with emphasis on silver gelatin prints. Interested in photography since childhood, a friend saw her early 1980's snapshots and persuaded her to learn darkroom techniques. Within a year of her first class, Henry won an honorable mention in the "Arkansas Times" statewide contest and began shooting publicity photographs for musicians. Currently, she is a fine art photography teacher with the Blue Eyed Knocker Photo Club and the Little Rock School District after school program. The photographs in this exhibit make use of numerous cameras and methods of processing and printing.
