Kathy Borchers Photojournalism Collection

1977-2018
6 boxes (2.75 linear foot)
Call no.: PH 083

An award-winning photojournalist, Kathy Borchers began a thirty year career with the Providence Journal in the mid-1980s. A native of Dayton, Ohio, she and her twin sister Karen T. Borchers (also a photojournalist) took up photography in high school and refined their technique as undergraduates at Bowling Green State University. After receiving her master's degree at the Indiana University School of Journalism in 1981, Borchers worked for three years with the Topeka Capital-Journal before landing in Providence. In addition to covering general news and sports, she took on a number of special assignments and longer-form photoessays over the years in southern New England. She retired in 2015.

A rich sampling from a long career in photojournalism, the collection includes photographic negatives and prints along with associated published materials. Centered primarily on her time with the Providence Journal, the collection reflects the breadth of Borchers' assignments, including general news, sports coverage, and longer-form photoessays, in both black and white and color The collection also includes five self-made books: three on long-term photographic projects for the Journal and two career retrospectives.

Fourth of July parade preparations, Bristol, R.I., 1993

Kathy Borchers turned a teenaged love of photography into a distinguished career in journalism. Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Borchers and her twin sister Karen took up photography during their years at Chaminade-Julienne High School, setting up a darkroom in their parents' house and contributing to the yearbook, with Kathy serving as editor during their senior year in 1975. As undergraduates at Bowling Green State University, the sisters deepened their interest, contributing to the yearbook from their first year in college on and serving as co-editors as juniors. Kathy was photo editor as a senior.

After graduating in 1979, Karen T. Borchers went on to graduate study at Ohio University and then to a successful career as a photojournalist with the San Jose Mercury News. Kathy earned her master's degree from the Indiana University School of Journalism, working as an associate instructor for three semesters before earning her masters in December 1981. A summer internship at the Louisville Courier-Journal during her final year in the program led to work as a stringer and then to a second internship early in 1982. From Louisville, she went on to a three year stint with the Topeka Capital-Journal, working on assignments and layout and as picture editor, before joining the staff of the Providence Journal in June 1985. Working on assignment, in layout and design at the picture desk, and eventually with videos and digital editing, Borchers covered a broad terrain over her thirty year career with the Journal, from general news to sports and special assignments.

Borchers was one of fifty photographers featured in the Women in Photojournalism exhibition at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1992 and her work is part of the permanent collection at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. Her professional commitments led to service as Chair of the Women's Committee of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) from 1990 to 1998 and as co-director of the Women in Photojournalism Conference (NPPA) in 1992.

Among a long list of awards for her work, Borchers received the Award of Excellence from the NPPA (1996), the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award (1991), the Morris Berman Citation from the National Press Photographers Association (1994) as well as first place honors from the Rhode Island Press Association (2010, 2014), the Boston Press Photographers Association (1990), the Rhode Island News Photographers Association (1985, 1987, 1988), and the New England Associated Press (1990). She was also runner up for the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism in multi-media in 2010 and won the National Press Photographers Association clip contests on many occasions.

Borchers retired in 2015 and resides in southeastern Massachusetts.

Scope of collection

A rich sampling from a long career in photojournalism, the Borchers collection includes photographic negatives and prints with associated published materials. Centered largely on her time with the Providence Journal, the collection reflects the breadth of Borchers' assignments, including general news, sports coverage, and longer-form photoessays, both in black and white and color. The collection also includes five self-made books: three on long-term photographic projects for the Journal and two career retrospectives.

Meticulous in her work, Borchers generally kept copies of the work orders assigning her to a project along with clippings of the articles in which her work ultimately appeared, filing them with the negatives. The collection also includes a number of newspapers and magazines in which her work was featured.

Series descriptions

During the first half of her career, Borchers shot mostly black and white 35mm. film, although she increasingly used color for assignments as time went on. Selected by Borchers from the total body of her work, the negatives in this series are arranged chronologically. Each file represents a single shoot and many files contain the work orders -- often with detailed information on her subjects -- and clippings of the printed articles in which her images appeared. One series of images (a photo essay on contemporary descendants of the Vanderbilt family) was taken with a medium format camera in both color negatives and transparency.

The Borchers collection includes unmounted several dozen 8x10" and 11x14" prints and forty-one mounted 11x14" prints. Dating from the beginning of the career while working for the Louisville Courier-Journal through the early 2000s, the majority of these images appear to have printed to submit to contests for photojournalistic awards.

Series 3 includes a selection of newspapers and Sunday magazine inserts featuring Borchers' work, a few pieces of ephemera, and five self-made books of her work. Three of these books relate to long-form photographic essays on Marjorie Sundlun, wife of Rhode Island's governor, who was recovering from being hit by a car; Adam Maione, a child with cerebral palsy; and Andrew Bateson, who survived bacterial meningitis. The two retrospective volumes of Borchers' work, On Assignment and On Assignment, Part 2 include selections of images taken between 1977 and 2006 and 2007 and 2015, respectively.
