Denis Hill Photography

We have received the most amazing gift from Denis Hill and his family.  When Denis passed recently, he wanted Island County Museum to have his catalog of works.  Denis was a fine art photographer, and earned the Qualified Panoramic Photographer designation from the International Association of Panoramic Photographers in 2001 He was a long time friend of the museum and is sorely missed. 

Thank you Denis!
