they all moved away...
but the daffodils stayed
This photograph of an abandoned
home place, captured on a cloudy
winter's day, became the favored
image to grace the cover of Conway
As it was . . . As it is, a photographic history of Conway, Arkansas. Copies
of this first book by Bill Ward are still available for purchase.
_ Bill has been photographing life
for more than half a century and has
amassed an archive of almost half a
million images. Beginning as a news
photographer in Conway, Arkansas,
he soon moved into the commercial
photography realm and traveled the
globe capturing real-world images.
_ His newest book is entitled
Beyond the River . . . Stories of Life
Near the Arkansas. This collection
of photographs and stories of the
people who have created the fabric
of life in Arkansas, the Natural State,
is beautifully bound and destined to
grace coffee tables for years to come.
_ Emelene Russell-Ward of Castle
Rock, Colorado, is the designer
of each of Bill Ward's books. They
now maintain their businesses in
Colorado and Arkansas while
pursuing the things they love by
creating photography and sculpture.
He also conducts photography
workshops at the cabin in the woods
near Bee Branch, Arkansas.
