Phil Borges: Women Empowered
Phil Borges... Humaria, 11 (Kabul, Afghanistan, Ed. 7/35, archival digital print). "...Humaria sells eggs as a street vendor to help her family survive. As with many families in Afghanistan, years of war have left them very poor. Only half of all Afghan children ages 7 to 13 attend school. When the luxury of education is an option, boys are typically chosen over girls." From the exhibition Phil Borges: Women Empowered, February 19 – March 7, 2009 at Diane Farris Gallery in Vancouver, Canada.
