Terry Heffernan is a film and still photographer and producer whose work we have featured before. Another of his amazing photographic series is his American Icons Series where he brilliantly captures the American spirit. He focuses on historic collections from various parts of the US. There were so many beautiful photographs making the selection here difficult!
What could be more iconic than the Stars and Stripes? Terry photographed items from the Stars and Stripes Foundations.
Baseball is arguably one of the most popular American sports. The images from this part of his series are of items from The National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum, Cooperstown, New York.
Flyfishing is also a well appreciated past time, one that has a long history too. The beautifully composed items in Terry’s photographs come from the American Museum of Fly Fishing, Manchester, Vermont.
Objects of the Amish is his tribute to the people who still live very simple lives in a modern world. These are artifacts from the Lebanon Historical Society, Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
