Carol Beesley Hennagin’s love for photography began during her education at the University of California, Los Angeles. For more than 35 years, she has collected works by many of the best known photographers of the 20th century. In 1988, Beesley began donating portions of her collection to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art in honor of her late husband Michael Hennagin. Still Looking offers a survey of Beesley’s collecting practices and includes photographs by established artists such as Edward Weston and Frederick Sommer, as well as lesser-known figures. The exhibit also features promised gifts of Myron Wood’s photographs of Georgia O’Keeffe.
