Carolyn Evans first picked up the camera nearly a decade ago to photograph dogs and cats in an effort to promote local shelters and rescue groups. She continues to support local animal groups through her photography and has served as Board President for Cincinnati’s United Coalition for Animals, opening the area’s first non-profit spay/neuter clinic aimed at tackling the pet overpopulation epidemic. An animal activist at heart, Carolyn is pleased to support the Paws Charity Art Book and its beneficiary, Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade, an organization that carries the Humane Charity Seal of Approval.
Carolyn's photograph "Tyrone" is featured on page 6 of the 2010 Paws For Charity Art Book. Tyrone was photographed the day after he was diagnosed with liver cancer. Ten days later, he was gone.
Here are a couple of links to read more about Tyrone's story:
"There is such a deep and pure bond between animals and the people who have truly opened their hearts to them. I aim to capture the essence of an animal on film and to create lasting memories that my clients will cherish. I photographed Tyrone the day after he was diagnosed with liver cancer. Ten days later, he was gone. On that day, I wanted to capture the beauty of his life and his spirit. And with this photo, I think I did just that." - Carolyn
