Trucking community mourns loss of photographer Bette Garber

If Helen of Troy’s face launched a thousand ships, Bette Garber’s lens immortalized a thousand trucks.

The distinguished trucking photojournalist died unexpectedly Thursday, Nov. 13, following a persistent illness. She had been an OOIDA member since 2002.

From her home base in Thorndale, PA, Garber spent a long career roaming U.S. highways shooting stunning photos of what she described as “objects of beauty, power and majesty.” Garber’s stock photography business, “Highway Images,” offered an impressive body of work that established her as a photographer who made shooting semi trucks an art form.
