DON CARD THE PHOTOGRAPHER


Don Card fell in love with photography 60 years ago.  At 11 he would buy from the drug stores of Pittsburg the all-in-one developing kit for his negatives. His work life was in the biggest photo labs of New York and Miami. 

He used his craft in retouching, burning, dodging, exposing then printing colour or black & white  photos providing quality and professionalism to the biggest celebrity photographers of the time. The skilled one, in these days, had a fame and he was one of them. He was a master printer.

His work has no signature, but without knowing you saw it on magazines, posters , murals attached to the world-famous brand and names.

Also, he is a portrait photographer and exposed in the French West Indies, where he lived for a while, and the US.

Please, take time and look at a few of his portraits.  Some taken over 30 years ago and manufactured, the old fashion way,  by hand.  

The slide show are pictures taken of photos so the contrast is dark and I apologize for that.
