SaraLee Pindar - Leica Inspires Lifelong Passion

One of our favorite kinds of articles... Where someone is gifted a camera (in this case a Leica) and catches "the bug" - turning photography into a lifelong passion! The Burlington County Times is running the story of SaraLee Pindar who's been shooting ever since the late 1950's when she got the camera from her uncle. But it was her artistic mother who really shaped her. Check out the article, called "The art of photography" to read about her exhibit, which runs through April 24, 2014 and is spread over three areas of the Pemberton Library in Browns Mills, NJ. You can view her images from around the world, shot during travels with her husband, who died last summer. We won't hold it against her that she seems to prefer a Nikon these days...
