EDWARDS — Photographer George Vago will discuss his own photographic journey while critiquing the Vail Valley Art Guild photography exhibit “10 Days on the Eagle River and Gore Creek” at 6:30 p.m. today, at the Singletree Community Center in Edwards.

The Vail Valley Art Guild’s photography project began one hour before sunrise on Friday, July 1, and ran through one hour after sunset on Sunday, July 10. All photographers were provided a map of the delineated area and requested to respect private property.

Vago, who currently resides in Denver, was born in Budapest, Hungary, to a father who enjoyed photography and taught his son techniques and photography development processes.



Influential friendships

Vago studied photography under Reed Estabrook at San Jose State University, enrolled in a series of photographic workshops with Ansel Adams and befriended architectural and landscape photographers Morley Baer and Marvin Wax.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.



Vago prefers using large-format cameras, which can be quite heavy. In recent years, he designed and fabricated two lightweight, large-format cameras for his work. You can learn more about the photographer and his work at http://www.george-vago.com.
