We'll let Barbara describe her own program...
"My presentation is about the career of a self-taught photographer who entered the then male-dominated fashion photography world as the first woman in a generation. I will show a wide variety of work done throughout that career and discuss how these wonderful projects came about.
"I do not concentrate on the technical side of photography — although I do cite interesting technical aspects when appropriate — rather on the creative, conceptual side of photography, based on my background in fine arts and fashion.
"There are many funny stories, touching stories and professional stories that make up what I hope is an inspirational, entertaining evening."
Over the past thirty-nine years she has received innumerable honors and awards for her film and print work, including:
- Clios for film & print
- The International Film Festival Gold Medal
- Nikon Award
- Art Directors’ Club Awards
- Missouri School of Journalism Award
- The Polaroid Corporation commission to document portraits of America’s Great Women of Jazz - the first 8x10 Polacolor.
Her book SEARCHINGS, Secret Landscapes of Flowers was published in the spring of 2003 to rave reviews. SEARCHINGS, Volume II was published May 2004 to even greater acclaim, and Volume III was published in the fall of 2005. A traveling exhibition of these photographs is currently showing throughout the United States. Ms. Bordnick served three terms as the president of the Advertising Photographers of New York, and was the first woman president of the American Society of Magazine Photographers in 1977-78. On May 24, 2006 she was awarded the International Photographic Council’s Leadership Award at the United Nations.
