A life less ordinary

AFTER 20 years as a photographer at The Northern Star it is time for me to say farewell to its readers.

The journey has been amazing.

I am proud to leave behind me such a large body of work and thank the community that has, over the years, treated me with great warmth and respect.

In my time here I have met and photographed thousands of people, been in as many homes, and to them I say a big thank you.

I acknowledge my colleagues, and of course my family, all of whom have been unwavering in their support of a profession that at times can be both uplifting and at others times hard going.

As for the future I shall be staying in the area, taking some time to smell the roses and exploring the many photographic projects I have put on the backburner.

For sure I shall not be hanging up my camera.

Cheers and thank you,

Jacklyn Wagner.
