Photographer Bob Henderlong captures the magic of southern Arizona’s wild and not-so-wild places, the exuberant energy and humor of its people, and the unique biodiversity of the birds, plants, and animals of the Sonoran Desert and its “sky islands.”
Photographs of the historic trains of Durango, Colorado and Chama, New Mexico, along with the flowers and birds of Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri round out this delightful retrospective collection of two decades of work.
About the Author
Robert “Bob” Henderlong was eight years old when he acquired his first camera, a Kodak Pony that ignited his lifelong passion for photography. Moving on to an Argus C3 in high school, he continues today with a Canon digital camera with a collection of lenses.
Armed with a degree in electrical engineering from Valparaiso Technical Institute, Bob moved from his hometown of Crown Point, Indiana to Chicago to work at Magnecord, where he designed tape recorders, for which he received four design patents. After Magnecord was acquired by Midwestern Instruments, a manufacturer of aircraft tape recorders and missile components in Tulsa, he relocated to Oklahoma, eventually landing a job with Altec Lansing, where he was Chief Engineer of the University Sound Division. Bob capped his audio career with a few years as an independent contractor.
Bob is a licensed ham radio operator and has done volunteer work as an engineer on a historic railroad. He has also volunteered at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum as an event photographer. Bob and his wife, Barbara, his partner in adventure, are based just outside Tucson, Arizona, within walking distance of Tucson Mountain Park, where they have spent almost two decades photographing the beautiful and entertaining animals and birds just outside their doorstep.
