Photography Prize
Former Gleaner photographer and Henderson native Tyler Orsburn was recently named the 2012 winner of the Dorothea Lange Fellowship at the University of California, Berkeley.

The fellowship, in memory of one of the most outstanding photographers of the 20th century, encourages the use of photography in scholarly work of any discipline.

Orsburn, who was awarded $4,000, said he has one year to complete his project, which he said will take him to Honduras to document land reform among the Maya Ch’or’ti, an indigenous people near the Copan Ruinas.
