A View of the Everglades

Miami International Airport

EXPERIENCE THE EVERGLADES PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION AT MIA 2011, 2012 and 2013

(Miami-Dade County, Fla.) – International passengers arriving at Miami International Airport’s North Terminal will virtually step off the plane and into America’s Everglades with Experience the Everglades, a collection of 26 vivid, large-scale photographs featuring the reserve’s wildlife and landscapes that now line the walls of the terminal’s international arrivals corridor. The exhibition, which is on display through December, is a partnership between the Miami-Dade Aviation Department’s Division of Fine Arts and Cultural Affairs, Everglades National Park (U.S. National Park Service) and the Everglades Foundation.

“The exhibition is designed to increase awareness of the Everglades globally by giving our international passengers a sampling of it in all its wonder and encourage them to visit in person,” said Yolanda Sánchez, Ph.D., Miami-Dade Aviation Department Fine Arts and Cultural Affairs Division Director.  “As Marjory Stoneman Douglas once said, ‘there are no other Everglades in the world.’”

“The great news about Everglades National Park and the ecosystem that supports 67 threatened or endangered species is that passionate, dedicated people are working hard to protect and restore its wonders for all to see,” said Kirk Fordham, CEO, Everglades Foundation. “The stunning photography in this exhibit makes us all appreciate its grandeur and relevance.”

Agencia EFE

La belleza y el misterio del Parque Nacional de Los Everglades, la única reserva subtropical de EEUU, quedan al descubierto en las excepcionales instantáneas que el fotógrafo argentino Alejandro Borgese expone en el aeropuerto internacional de Miami.La exhibición, que reúne una veintena fotografías a gran escala en una terminal del aeropuerto, documenta no sólo la belleza más recóndita del parque sino también la increíble diversidad biológica que atesora en sus más de 600.000 hectáreas en el sur de Florida.La muestra incluye fotografías de la abundante flora del parque, de espectaculares manglares, bosques de cipreses o islas arboladas entre los humedales, además de aves como águilas, gaviotas, cigüeñas y garzas.

 

“El parque me ganó como naturaleza y exigencia de uno mismo. Cada momento era una experiencia distinta, de cada foto sacaba algo que era único. La naturaleza me atrapó y me hizo parte de ella”, comentó a Efe con entusiasmo Borgese, quien reconoció que no fue así al principio.

De hecho, sus primeras tentativas fueron frustrantes. La aventura fotográfica no comenzó con buen pie. “Cuando empecé a recorrer el parque yo no veía nada, no distinguía un ruido, no veía una sombra ni un contraste, sólo un cielo gris”, confesó este fotógrafo que durante un año recorrió a pie, en coche, canoa o avioneta este ecosistema único.

Ayudado por expertos guías, Borgese se adentró en zonas recónditas, veladas a la mayoría, de muy difícil acceso, pastizales y lagos que le sobrecogieron. “Era como abrir una caja y estaba llena de oro y nunca terminaba”, señaló.

Mientras, sus sentidos comenzaron a aguzarse: “mi visión, mi oído, mis habilidades se desarrollaron” en el curso del proyecto fotográfico, al que se entregó a un ritmo de 16 y 18 horas diarias de trabajo.

“Los Everglades me cambiaron la vida”, resumió Borgese, quien ha seleccionado algunas de la 32.000 instantáneas que tomó en Los Everglades para publicarlas en 2012 en un libro ilustrado que patrocina Obra Social de Caja Madrid y la editorial Lumber.

Una relación con este frágil ecosistema casi adictiva, ya que el fotógrafo necesita volver periódicamente a los Everglades en busca de “paz y equilibrio”, de un “orden y una armonía”, dijo, que no encuentra en el ser humano, “destructivo y peligroso”, y sí en la naturaleza, siempre “generadora de vida”.

No obstante, cuenta que vivió algunos momentos de peligro. Uno de ellos al toparse casi de frente, entre los pastizales de hierbas, con una de las cuatro víboras nativas más venenosas, la conocida como mocasín de agua.

“No sé que hubiera pasado si la hubiese pisado, estando a unos 2,5 kilómetros de la ruta principal, en el agua”, explicó Borgese, quien llevaba, no obstante, siempre con él un teléfono satelital con GPS.

O la ocasión en que se encontró en esta región pantanosa con un cocodrilo a unos diez metros de distancia y tuvo que retroceder rápidamente hacia la canoa. “El cocodrilo me detectó y me atacó. Es uno de los animales más agresivos”, recordó.

La visión más hermosa de su aventura fotográfica tuvo lugar en las denominadas 10.000 Islas de la Bahía del Golfo de México, que sobrevoló en avioneta, y en el lago Ingraham, en el extremo sur de este humedal compuesto de nueve hábitats claramente diferenciados.

Se trata de un lago “único, un refugio de animales, lleno de paz”, explicó el fotógrafo, quien evocó también las “playas desiertas de arena blanca” o las caminatas de kilómetros para captar una “vida vegetal única en lugares donde la gente y el turismo no llega”.

Alertó a continuación del peligro que corre este frágil ecosistema, hogar de muchas especies amenazadas, un parque nacional “al que ya le han robado mucho terreno y que la población humana” pone en riesgo de supervivencia, aseguró.

City National Bank Celebrates Grand Opening

 

Noted South Florida photographer Alejandro Borgese with Jorge Gonzalez and the signed photo presented to Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff.

City National Bank of Florida (CNB) recently marked the grand opening of its new Brickell Banking Center at an evening reception for city and civic officials, business executives and clients. The event also celebrated the 100th anniversary of Brickell Avenue, which lends its name to America’s most recognized financial district after Wall Street.

The event’s VIPs included Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado, Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff, former Miami Beach Mayor and CNB board member Neisen Kasdin, Miami Downtown Development Authority Executive Director Alyce Robertson, Florida International University President and CNB board member Mark Rosenberg, and numerous others. Many local business and residential organizations also were represented, including the Brickell Area Association and the Brickell Homeowners Association. CNB President and Chief Executive Officer Jorge Gonzalez introduced senior administrators of CNB parent Caja Madrid, one of Spain’s oldest and largest financial institutions. He also presented Commissioner Sarnoff with a commemorative photo of the Everglades taken by South Florida-based photographer Alejandro Borgese. Commissioner Sarnoff congratulated CNB on the opening of the banking center.

City National Bank, which has served the downtown and Brickell areas for 50 years, expanded its high-touch personal service and best-in-class client experience to Miami’s international banking and business center at its Brickell Banking Center. Situated in the LEED® Gold Certified 1450 Brickell Avenue building, the new banking center brings City National Bank’s total number of locations in Florida to 26. It is the only bank with four locations in the downtown and Brickell areas.

The banking center is the most recent indication of CNB’s growth and expansion in both services and locations during the past year. The bank’s 65-year heritage as the personalized banking team for customers across South Florida and beyond is built upon its core values.

One of South Florida’s most stable, reliable and sound banks, CNB prides itself on being large enough to give clients what they want, but small enough to do it the way clients want it. Bank professionals embrace the communities they serve and provide a diverse array of financial products and personal services to small businesses, corporate and commercial clients, and individuals.

CNB is the fourth-largest financial institution in the state with more than $3.8 billion in assets, $2.8 billion in deposits and $1.8 billion in loans.
