1983, Celtic Images has been sharing the inspiring beauty of the
Emerald Isle through our custom prints. For over twenty years,
Rick Henderson and his wife, Kathie, have traveled extensively
throughout Ireland - down narrow dirt roads, amidst herds of sheep,
through remote villages - waiting patiently for hours (and sometimes
days!) to obtain images that not only evoke an Irish sentiment,
but speak to the viewer on an emotional level as well. Rick has
attempted to capture and record some of the culture and traditions
that seem, at times, to be rapidly disappearing.
A professional photographer for over thirty years, Rick specializes
in the photography of Ireland. His work is in the collections
of the Nobel Prize winning poet, Seamus Heaney, writer, Father
Andrew Greeley and has been purchased by singers Billy Joel and
Rod Stewart. Rick and his wife maintain a home and studio in Hunt
Valley, Maryland which they are allowed to share with their two
cats, Finnegan and Murphy.
