By BBN Staff: An impressive photo exhibit was opened for display this evening at Galen University. The black and white collection of photographs, representing images from all walks of life in Belize, was taken and developed by Thom Moran, one of the longest serving member of the Galen family.
The collection includes historic buildings in downtown Belize City, Orange Walk town, San Ignacio as well as the rural landscape of Belize. It captures images of young kids, machete in hand, strolling along a pathway, and highlights the cultural diversity of Belize in a unique and traditional way.
Gina Anderson, Financial Services Manager at Galen University, convinced Moran to share the “glimpses into the past” that his photographs afford. Once Moran agreed, the Galen family joined hands with Fernando Cruz, tour guide and artist from San Ignacio, to organize and present the exhibit.
In introducing the exhibit, Sherry Gibbs, Dean of the Faculty or Arts, Science and Technology at Galen University stated that “taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality truly is” is the best way to describe this valuable contribution from Thom Moran. Dr. Kostas Karanikis, Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Dr. Rene Villanueva, Chairman of the Board of Trustees both delivered short addresses and commended Moran for his love and creativity in taking, printing and preserving these historic photographs.
Thom Moran, a photographer, first arrived in Belize in 1985, and returned in 1986 to make Belize his home. Moran is married to a Belizean and lived most of his life in picturesque Benque Viejo del Carmen.
