Photographer's daughter seeks subjects of found portraits
Longtime Sandy area photographer Derald Bleu may have died in 2007, but his work lives on. Now his daughter, Desiree Jordan, is attempting to reconnect some portraits Bleu took with their rightful owners.
Jordan has two large, printed portraits taken by her father — one of a woman she estimates to have been in her 20s or 30s at the time, and one of a man who appears to be in his 60s. Both portraits likely were used for advertising while Bleu ran Bleu's Photography. Now Jordan would like to return the photographs to the subjects' families or loved ones.
Jordan speculated that the subjects could have been from Sandy or as far away as Portland.
Anyone who recognizes the people in the portraits is asked to call Jordan at 509-493-0105.
