Krieger Dental presents Sally Halvorsen
April 12th WSAW, 2012
Krieger Dental presents photography by Sally Halvorsen! "Photography has been my passion for forever. I love pictures, landscape, flowers...I really love it all!"
Sally Halvorsen grew up in Great Falls, MT where she bought her first pocket instamatic and took pictures of her home and the surrounding area while it was flooded. From then on, she was hooked.
Sally met and married a wonderful man who was into photography as well, and through his encouragement (and the purchase of her first DSLR (Nikon D80), she fell even more in love with photography. After her husband passed in 2008, she began to really immerse herself in taking photos; it's what got her up in the morning and enabled her to put one foot in front of the other. Photography served as a sort of outlet for the pain.
In 2010, Sally knew she had to push herself to get out and meet new people, to live again. She knew her husband wanted her to do the things they had not been able to do together, and that's exactly what she did. Sally signed up for workshops, met wonderful people that shared her passions and she even published a book called 'Promise of Daylight: A Photographic Journey of Healing Through the Lens."
Sally says she was "honored when Melissa of Krieger Dental asked if she would participate in the West Seattle Art Walk." Sally will also be participating in the Anacortes Garden Festival on May 4th & 5th.
