|Holly Henderson grew up in the piney woods of Lufkin in East Texas and graduated from the University of Texas with a BFA in 2002. The following year she made the leap to New York City to pursue a career in photography and got her start working for well-known photographers like Annie Leibovitz, and at the renowned International Center of Photography.|
Holly looks at the minute details in people and places that are easy to take for granted and she has gained great inspiration from returning to her Texas roots to try and discover new aspects of the small town where here passion for photography was born. In 2007 Holly spent a year documenting the people, places, and culture of that town and the body of work produced became a solo exhibition. "Home in East Texas" debuted at the Museum of East Texas in 2008 and was a rousing success. Since that time she has worked on a number of travel and documentary projects in Texas, South Africa, and Thailand.
Holly concentrates on food, travel, music, and portraiture photography. Her love of food and food culture has become a central part of her work. Some of her clients include Nike, Austin Monthly, The New York Times, Getty Images, MTV, Alicia Keys, BMW, Quality Meats, Botkier, Lauren Merkin, and the History Channel. She resides in Austin Texas when she's not trekking around the globe, looking for new inspiration.
