Ann Richards

Ann Richards, Liberty County Courthouse, 1990 Ave Bonar

“I had the unique opportunity to photograph Ann Richards’ first campaign for governor. This is one of my favorites. It was taken on one of her many tours of East Texas. I don’t remember why we stopped at the Liberty County Courthouse, but we did. She seemed to be as comfortable with the folks she met there as she was with herself. She was sure enjoying his story!”

Ave Bonar is a freelance photographer living in Austin. More of her Ann Richards photos were published in With Ann: A Journey Across Texas with a Candidate for Governor (1991). See more of Ave Bonar’s work here.
