About the Author: Adam Bacher
When your vision becomes a reality, how will you tell your story? I’m a commercial photographer and photojournalist based in Portland, Oregon, since 1991. I specialize in commercial location photography for businesses. The majority of this work is for architectural, corporate, editorial, and public relations clients, and appears in a variety of print and electronic media. You can view samples online at: www.adambacher.com. Since 2007 I’ve been taking a month each year to devote my time towards humanitarian missions. Three trips have taken me to Rwanda, for a project documenting the countries recovery from the genocide in 1994, which claimed the lives of one-million people in the course of 100 days. Images and stories from the places I visited are featured on my blog site at: www.bachersblog.com. This November, I’m going to Haiti for 4 weeks, to help two non-profits working tirelessly to save and rebuild lives following the earthquake in 2010. As well as donating my still and video images, I plan to create a traveling print exhibit, and a multi-media educational presentation to build awareness and remind us of Haiti's needs. If you’re interested in project please see this link: http://igg.me/p/44329?a=249927&i=shlk My commercial work makes this humanitarian effort possible. I exhibit and speak nationally, offering a provocative visual and journalistic insight into contemporary Rwanda and the recovery, reconciliation, and reconstruction of the of the country. This message of hope, peace, and diversity, has been enthusiastically received at peace conferences, corporate gatherings, and in public schools. Specialties All aspects of location photography including: Architectural, Corporate, Editorial, People, Public Relations, Travel and Photojournalism. .
Awesome photography – capturing the Rwandan culture and people….. opening our eyes to the value of experiencing and capturing “difference” …
Wow! Amazing pictures— wish there is more I could do to help out– I’m buying a goat that you, Victoria and her husband John can give to a Very lucky Chid on your next trip–Take care.
We just returned from short stay on Molokai and I got caught up with your blog. I am so proud of you that I can’t even stand it. Your work is bringing tears to my eyes (and you know how hard hearted I am). Of course I love the gorrillas, but the portaits—adults and children alike are amazing. You are amazing! Jack shares my sentiments. We love you—keep going for it!
Adam, Wow! what lovely images. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to let Billy see your blog, boy was I wrong. Some of those kids are healthier than USian kids! Thanks for opening my eyes to new beauty! Love ya!
Hi Adam, the photos are amazing. Can’t tell you how much I am enjoying them. Keep up the wonderful work!
Adam, received the wonderful card about the blog site. It brought tears to my eyes. The map I can follow your journey, the people we are desperate to help I wish I could hug each one. And the children – our children they are beautiful. THANK YOU for this special gift.
Hey Adam, it’s good to hear from you. My dad and I just got the postcard that you were on assignment. That’s great. I am leaving for southern Africa on Oct. 16th (I will be in namibia, botswana, zambia, and South Africa). I will be doing both sight seeing and climbing. Talk to you soon and have fun out there.
Adam, what powerful photos already, warm wishes to you on your journey, thank you for sharing the world through your eyes.
Yes, a map! You gotta have a map!
We look forward to seeing your postings.
