Review

"stunning book" "lovely and powerful book" -- 03/15 SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

"a book of exquisite portrait photography" -- Jul MORE MAGAZINE

" stunning coffee-table book." "On a lighter note, we feel it's no coincidence that 'Borges' rhymes with 'gorgeous' - an apt description of his important work." -- Apr SEATTLE MAGAZINE Apr SEATTLE MAGAZINE

"Though his new project is about other heroes, Borges is one of ours because he has the ability to find an uplifting angle on stories many other photographers tell in hopelessly grim detail." -- May AMERICAN PHOTO

"beautifully documented" -- Jun TOWN & COUNTRY

Very inspirational and moving book on women and children in the developing world. How many have risen up against the tide of a male dominated society and achieved goals, both individually for themselves and for their communities. Their moving stories are told through the photographs of Phil Borges, a master fine art photographer and paragraph descriptions of the women/girls he photographed and met. Highly recommend this book, beautiful photos and a fine introduction by Madeline Albright.
