Look for the soul of Indiana to shine on at the Worthington-Jefferson Township Public Library.
The library is sponsoring a program dubbed "Capturing the Soul of Indiana" -- which celebrates the state's overlooked cultural heritage through photography.
The program is slated for 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 23 and will be presented by John Bower, an award-winning Hoosier photographer.
Andrea Fuller, Worthington-Jefferson Township Public librarian, provided the details.
"This is his most popular presentation," she said. "It takes you on a visual journey of exploration to remnants of Indiana's rapidly disappearing past."
His photography includes forlorn houses, farms, towns, vehicles and country cemeteries from across the state.
His haunting images also include hand-carved angels, children and soldiers as well as rarely viewed treasures from inaccessible attics and unexpected spaces, Fuller said.
"You'll marvel at towering grain elevators and feed mills that were once the life-blood of their communities. Inside closed-up businesses and stores you'll delight in seeing long-deserted places that are now virtual time capsules," Fuller added.
Bower will also share captivating stories behind each haunting photograph.
All images shown during the program are from Bower's six photography books.
"We would like to encourage the public to come and out enjoy the program," she added.
The library is located at 26 North Commercial Street in Worthington. Admittance is free. For more information, call 875-3815.
