Jack Ford, Photographer 97

Jack Ford by Kevin van Paassen of the Globe

Toronto. Mr Ford died May 3 of this year (2019) here in the big smoke of a brain tumour.  I did a post on Jack two years ago. He was known for his World War 2 photographs. While born in Oklahoma City, he moved here as a baby and was raised by his maternal grandparents.

This November his death was remembered in a Lives Lived column written by his daughter Tracy. It is a fitting tribute to this remarkable photographer.

By the way, if you click on the tiny photo at left, an enlarged view shows just what a professionally taken portrait can show. Well done Kevin!
