Abigail of Brown County | Frank Hohenberger Photographs

Frank M. Hohenberger (1876-1963)

Frank Hohenberger was a nationally known black and white photographer who came to live in Brown County in 1917 to chronicle daily life. His photographs were full of charm and beauty. Besides photographing the local people, he photographed the Brown County artists while they painted. He was also known for his Christmas cards. Over time he became part of the greater artist community. He was a leader in his field and was widely known for his weekly column "Down In The Hills O' Brown County" published in the Indianapolis Star. Here is a sampling of his work that Portia and Ralph Sperry had in her collection.
