Briana Gallo joined me at 9:15am to talk about her film “The Bee Keeper."

If you missed Briana Gallo on today's show, listen here!

Briana Gallo’s “The Bee Keeper” tells the story of Ed “Doc” Ziegler, a retired dentist living in a small town in New England. 35 years ago, he discovered apitherapy - the power of bees to heal - both physically and mentally. He now devotes his life to beekeeping and shares the curative powers of bee venom with his community. His neighbors and friends recount their own recovery stories and loving thoughts about this kind and humble man who, at the age of 97, is still tending to the needs of his ‘patients.

"Courage is the power to let go of the familiar."

Briana Gallo is a Fine Art Photographer as well as a Photo Philanthropist. She currently lives and works in La Jolla, CA. She believes in the power of Photo Philanthropy to inspire hope and understanding, and to connect people around the world, as well as in our local communities. She visually articulates the mission of non-profit organizations in a compelling manner through Fine Art Photography. She believes in people’s interest in knowing more, in understanding better, in seeing the story, which can then lead to action and involvement.

In 2011, her travels took her to Honduras to work with Shoulder to Shoulder and the town of Guachipilincito. In 2012, she traveled to Cuba, where she captured the stories of the Cuban people and their vibrancy of life. 2013 she worked on a piece for Make It Right, a non-profit in the Lower Nine area of New Orleans focusing on housing for Katrina Victims. She is currently working on a number of projects in heart of the Omo Valley, Ethiopia. Each experience has inspired her to search for those communities where there is a story to be told. Briana forges real connections with communities when she shoots turning her lens into a bridge rather than a wall.

She is currently a member of the New Hampshire Art Association. She has had juried pieces in the PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont. She has attended two juried Fine Art shows – The Foundry in Pawtucket, RI and the Mystic Art Festival in Mystic, Connecticut. She also has pieces published in the PhotoPlace Gallery Books–Self Portrait, City Streets & Country Roads, Portraiture: Expression & Gesture, The Golden hours Dawn and Dusk, The Art of Travel Photography. Briana was featured in Omo Magazine in 2014. Her Cuban series is currently in the Emerald C Gallery, Coronado, CA.

Briana uses her photography to help people see through a variety of lenses. To open doors to what is surrounding us, both locally and abroad. The emotion she captures in her photography pulls viewers out of their comfort zones, provokes questions, brings smiles to ones face, tears to ones eyes, and makes one say, “I never knew.”
