Art Cardenas is a retired firefighter who worked for the City of Burlingame Fire Department for 30 years. Shortly after his retirement, Art was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. The doctors told Art that the cause of this disease was exposure to smoke, gases, and other harmful chemicals in the fires.
During the years as a firefighter, Art pursued his passion for photography. Art was drawn to capture candid scenes of nature, people, and structures native to Puerto Vallarta and California. After being diagnosed and living with pulmonary fibrosis, Art has decided to sell his pictures and use the proceeds from the sales to support individuals living with this debilitating disease.
