Photographer heeds cattle call

January 25, 2007


Every once in awhile, Rachael Sudlow takes a bucket of grain and goes for a drive.

Her goal: Find photogenic cows.

The Lawrence jeweler, who studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, has created a series called "Cowscapes." She takes up-close photos of cows - usually their backs - that make them look like the rolling Kansas hills.

"They're not the typical picture of a cow," Sudlow says. "I got really bored with the standard kind of look."

Her "Cowscapes" photos will be part of the Downtown Friday Gallery Walk, which is from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday at eight venues downtown.

The cow photos will be at Kimbari, 822 Mass. The gallery's phone number is 842-1067, and its Web site is
