After one miserable camping trip and decades of declaring herself a non-camper, ninth generation Arkansas resident and photographer, Linda Henderson, is shopping for a truck camper and planning her upcoming retirement trips. All it took was one night under the stars at the National Buffalo River to make up her mind.
Linda grew up on the grounds of the Arkansas Children’s Colony’s 400-acre campus for children with intellectual disabilities. Her father was one of their first employees and along with the children of the other employees, she and her younger brother had the run of the place.
For Linda, who was the only girl in the mix of employees’ children, if she wanted friends to play with, it was going to be boys. She grew up climbing trees and riding dirt bikes. No dolls or playhouses for her. Her interest in photography started when she was very small, when she was first allowed to use her mother’s Brownie camera to shoot pictures. She still has the camera today.
