Carolyn (Caroline) Harder was a Canadian female journalist photographer
from the 1940s, the daughter of Dr. E.C. Harder. Based in Westmount,
Quebec,of Irish descent, she traveled a lot. As a journalist
photographer, she worked for The Standard in Montreal and The Montreal
Gazette. She was often privileged with rare informal shots of
celebrities and world leaders. One of the very few women photographers
of her day, she provided a fresh and detailed angle with a warm subtlety
lacking in a male-dominated profession.
The prominent characteristic of Harder's photos is the relaxed
disposition of her subjects. Harder had the wonderful talent of
capturing joyful and tender moments with a casual but professional
angle. Most of her photographs are of happy, smiling people, as opposed
to an uptight portrait style. She displayed a unique warmth and
subtlety in all her photos. With regard to the quality, the images in
all her photos are crisp and sharp. Even in crowd shots, the details
are extremely clear, showing her expertise with professional cameras.
From her global assignments, there are magnificent views of buildings in
Florence, Quebec City, Montreal,Taiwan,etc. Her portfolio also
includes endearing pictures of camps, weddings and respected families,
with family names recorded in pen on the back of each photo.....will
make great gift-set for your beloved.
Estate prefers to have these unique pictures to return to those who
truly appreciate an artist's reflection of her times; captured moments
of joy, solemnity, relief, excitement and sentiment; historical and
family memorabilia. All of Carolyn Harder's items are of amazing
quality for reproduction, in excellent condition with no tears or paste
marks! Very Rare & Highly Collectable, of museum category.
