Every image has a story behind it and that's what "Why?" is all about. With each new image we're learning more about the artist along with what's in their heart and often their skill set.
Helen Yancy is one of the most recognized women in professional photography. She's a past president and Chairman of the Board of PPA, a leading educator and speaker, an artist, wife, mother, great friend and yes, a dog lover. Although best known for her work in watercolor portraiture, there's probably nothing Helen can't shoot.
I love the story about the image she chose to share on "Why?" It makes such a strong point for the fact that sometimes great photographs don't come from our mind's eye, but appear when we least expect them.
