Well-known photographer João Pestana passed away at the beginning of last night. He was 88 years old. João Pestana, well-known figure of the cultural environment of Funchal and the Region, began to photograph very early, having documented in photograph all the second half of the 20th century.
Honored by the Regional Government and the Republic and by the Municipality of Funchal, João Pestana held several exhibitions, not only in Madeira but also out of doors.
You would often see him taking coffee at Cafe Teatro and around Funchal.
Condolences to his family.
