An Evening with Phil Borges – April 3

Thursday, April 3, 7:30 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)

For over 25 years Phil Borges (www.philborges.com) has been visiting and documenting indigenous and tribal cultures around the world. His work has been collected and exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide and his award winning books have been published in four languages. His most recent book Tibet: Culture on the Edge focuses on the effects of rapid development and climate change on the Tibetan Plateau and the Tibetan people.

His project Stirring the Fire focuses on the empowerment and changing role of women in cultures around the world.  An exhibition, film and accompanying book introduces some of the extraordinary women who are breaking through gender barriers and conventions in order to enhance their well being and the well being of their communities.

Phil has hosted three television documentaries for Discovery and National Geographic as a part of a series that investigates indigenous cultures that still maintain a spiritual dialogue with the natural world.  His current project Inner Worlds explores these cultures and their shamans in order to understand what their cosmology has to offer us in the ‘developed’ world.

Phil teaches and lectures internationally and is co-founder of Blue Earth Alliance, a non-profit organization that sponsors photographic projects focusing on endangered cultures and threatened environments. In 2003 Phil was honored with the Lucie Humanitarian Award at the 1st Annual International Photography Awards.  In 2007 he was named by American Photo magazine as one of “10 photographers that inspire us.”

Greg Gorman

Thursday, February 20th, 7:30 pm (doors open at 7 pm)

Greg Gorman’s (www.gormanphotography.com) work documents that peculiar obsession of the 20th century celebrity. Each shot, a testament to the individual character, gives a picture of human nature in its infinite range. “For me a photograph is most successful when it doesn’t answer all the questions,” says Gorman,“ and it leaves something to be desired.” For over three decades, Greg Gorman has continued to master the art of photography. From personality portraits and advertising campaigns to magazine layouts and fine art work, Greg has developed and showcased a discriminating and unique style in his profession
