Colleen Anne Longhurst

Charities and Causes - Lymphoma Canada

Colleen was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She was brought with her family to Ontario in 1963, when she was twelve years old. From a young age and well into maturity, Colleen took an interest in animals and their care, the natural world outdoors, and photography. This all came together in her frequently walking along Ontario's trails with her dog Beemer, or riding the trails on her horse Knox, taking many photographs along the way.

On June 27, 2012, at the age of 59, Colleen passed away from lymphoma.

In going through her effects, a number of high resolution photographic images were found on her computer. Colleen had taken a series of photographs of plant life in a certain way such that the images became almost a texture or pattern. Her specific intent for taking these pictures in this way remains unknown, but the style suggested that she intended the pictures be seen as a group, together.

Eight of these photos have been selected to form a series we are calling "Colleen's Garden". These are available for purchase, professionally framed, with proceeds going to assist the efforts of Lymphoma Canada.
