Microsoft Icon of Imaging Phil Borges creates “Bridges to Understanding” through digital storytelling.
During the recent Seeds of Compassion event in Seattle, which featured the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, noted photographer Phil Borges worked with youth from around the world to help them document the event through photography and digital media. The event was a culmination of Borges’ vision for his Bridges to Understanding organization. Face to Face is a cultural exchange program sponsored by Bridges which brings together children from developing countries to learn photography and share cultures with children in developed countries.
