On Monday August 1st, 2016 photo-eye was very sad to hear of the loss of our colleague, collaborator, and friend Elaine Ling. We would like to take a moment to recognize and celebrate Ling’s life and work.
Personally, Ling is remembered for her exuberance, compassion, and winning smile:
“Elaine was a great friend and talented artist with an amazing, adventurous spirit. Her dedication to her art was incomparable. Elaine was an incredibly strong person through her illness, always hopeful despite the odds. Her smile was infectious and unforgettable.”
— Rixon Reed, Director of photo-eye
“It was great fun traveling with Elaine, she was intrepid and strong and there was always her positive energy and warm smile. It was a pleasure to watch her grow as a photographer and witness the success of her career as a visual artist - one of her many talents. I am grateful to have spent time with her and will miss her." — Mark Klett, Photographer & photo-eye Gallery Artist
