When long-time city of Akron photographer Bruce Ford retired, he didn't want the Beacon Journal to do a profile on him, saying he preferred to stay out of the limelight.
Ford will offer a rare glimpse into his many years of capturing what was going on in Akron during the monthly Downtown Kiwanis luncheon at noon Thursday at the Portage Country Club, 240 N. Portage Path.
Ford, who continues to work for the city on a contract basis, will share some of his photographs and discuss his career.
Tickets are $15 a the door. For a reservation, contact Katie Rennard at 330-643-5517 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
