Landmarks, street scenes and interesting people usually populate the photos of recent travelers. Paul-Henri Bourguignon collected all of the above during his journeys, and a new exhibit at OSU's Faculty Club will shed light on the globetrotter's observations. The Belgium-born writer, photographer and journalist traveled throughout Italy, France, North Africa, Peru and Yugoslavia, eventually meeting his future co-worker (and wife) in Haiti before settling in Columbus in the 1950s. Known initially for his figurative scenes and tranquil landscapes, Bourguignon shifted gears in the '70s, creating richly textured and expressionistic portraits of people he encountered during his travels. An opening reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 8.
