Phil Borges, Photographer

An interesting article on the work of Phil Borges at Pop

Many photographers have documented the difficulties faced by Earth's indigenous peoples, from poverty to prejudice, sexism to outright violence. Few have made as big a difference with their pictures as Phil Borges. Widely exhibited and published, Borges's work has depended on close partnerships with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), which provide the means to get the photographer to places that concern him. Yet the seed of Borges's latest project was planted on a self-supported project to photograph shamanism around the world. ("There's no NGO that's out to protect shamans," he jokes.) Here, American Photo's Russell Hart recounts Borges's journey.
