Esther Scarf – Arizona Highways Collection
Yucca Blooms with Teal
Named in honor of Esther Henderson
Esther Henderson didn’t plan on becoming a photographer, but when she wanted to trade her life as a show girl for something more professional, she flipped through the classified ads until she figured out something she could do without a college education. Born in Illinois but living in New York at the time, Henderson immediately bought a camera and enrolled in the New York Institute of Photography. When her three-month course was over, Henderson worked in photography shops around the country until, in the mid-1930s, she decided to set up her own studio in Tucson.
After she proved her talent, Henderson made her living from making portraits in her studio, but it was her landscape photographs of the Southwest that brought her worldwide acclaim. She often traveled and worked alongside her husband, photographer Chuck Abbett. Both photographers contributed to Arizona Highways for many years. In 2008, Henderson died at age 97 in Santa Cruz, California.
