    Default Phil Borges - humanitarian photographer

    Just saw a TV special on this photographer, and I was really impressed with his portraits.

    He is featured on Microsoft's Professional Photography website:

    You can also visit his own site:

    He is the founder of "Bridges of Understanding".
    "BRIDGES is an on-line classroom project connecting students from indigenous cultures with their urban contemporaries. Central to the program is interactive photographic storytelling mentored by professionals and created by the students.

    The BRIDGES curriculum guides students as they examine their own culture and explore the lives of children with beliefs and customs very different from their own. The program not only leads the students to a deeper understanding of their own culture and the culture of others, but to an understanding of how cultural customs and beliefs impact the environment.

    Hope you enjoy his work as much as I do.
