Close Encounters with the 3rd World. Wednesday, February 16,…

Philip Maher has worked as a photojournalist and communications/media specialist working alongside such organizations as World Vision and the World Food program.  His camera work and skill as a media relations specialist has been his passport to more than 85 countries including the documentation of crises and conflicts in Afghanistan, East Timor, Somalia, Sudan, and Rwanda. Philip lives in Guelph and writes a monthly column for “Guelph Today” under “Mercy Traveler”.

In this presentation, Philip will share his experiences and photography having worked in some of the harshest environments. Above all, he wants his images to help those forced to struggle on the margins of society whether in Canada or elsewhere. Surprisingly he notes that his strongest gift is not as a photographer, but as a person with a passion for making a difference.
