    View a lifetime’s worth of photography by Wayne County native Mary Beechy Pfeiffer. Never aspiring to become a professional, nevertheless, Mary’s natural talent and keen eye, as well as her ability to record life events using “friendly stealth,” sets her work apart. Her love of nature and her ability to catch people not necessarily looking their best, but being their best engages all who view her work and elevates the human experience.
