Sept. 11, 2001, is a day that will stick with Ted Horn forever.
And it’s not because of the terroristic attacks on the United States. No, for the Ellsworth native, the day was marked by a car accident that changed his life.
“I spent a year in recovery and rehabilitation, most of the time in bed or a wheelchair,” Horn explained. “The long days of boredom and pain I endured in the nursing home were spent rediscovering the beauty of small miracles.”
As a result, the inner artist in Horn started to blossom and, whether it be water colors, photography or whatever he found, a calling was forming.
“As a photographer-artist, I am always trying to capture the moment in time when the sensational colors of a sunset can’t be described in words,” he said. “Or the antics of a child that bring a smile to your face and a warm glow inside.”
The public will get a chance to see Horn’s works all this month at the Ellsworth Public Library. Visitors will have a chance to meet Horn from 3-8 p.m. this Thursday and 9 a.m.-noon this Saturday. Coffee and cookies will be served, along with the chance to purchase prints not on display at the library.
