Photographer's Work Exhibited to Benefit Breast Cancer Programs

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The Stable Gallery, a Salt Lake City art gallery, hosted a star-studded reception for photographer Dr. Hugh Hogle Thursday night to celebrate the opening of his first one-man show, entitled "To Heaven and Back," at The Stable Gallery, 132 E. Street in Salt Lake City. Proceeds from the exhibit, which will run through January 17, will be donated to breast cancer research and programs.

Dr. Hogle's photographs explore the unique beauty of Raratonga, in the Cook Islands. The exhibit captures the wild and stunning scenery, and the beautiful people of that island, one of the loveliest and least spoilt places on earth.

Dr. Hogle and his wife were invited to the Cook Islands by John Garbett, owner of The Stable Gallery and producer of the film "The Other Side of Heaven," to visit the filming of that movie. While visiting the set, Dr.Hogle took his series of stunning photographs exploring the island, its beauty and its culture.

Attending the reception were Dr. Hogle, Garbett, and also Garbett's film producing partner, Gerald R. Molen, the Academy Award-winning producer of Schindler's List. Joe Folau and Miriama Smith, two of the stars of The Other Side of Heaven, were also in attendance.

The island of Rarotonga, which doubles for the kingdom of Tonga in the film, was first settled in 1200 AD by the restless voyagers of Polynesia. It supports a tropical rainforest that has changed little since their arrival. Its inland mountains, the broken heart of a dead volcano, are home to over a hundred flowering plants. Its palm lined beaches give way to a crystal clear lagoon encircled by coral reefs and the vastness of the Pacific Ocean.

Hugh Hogle graduated from the University of Utah Medical School and subsequently interned at UCLA Harbor General Hospital. In 1987 he focused his Salt Lake medical practise on diseases and surgery of the breast. He established the first breast care center in the Intermountain area and was Director of Breast Care Services at St. Mark's Hospital. Dr. Hogel has been honored by the American Cancer Society and numerous local and national breast care related organizations. In 1995, while fishing in the Brazilian rainforest, Dr. Hogle suffered a stoke. He no longer practices medicine, but enjoys spending time with his family, hunting, fishing and photography.

"The Other Side of Heaven" is the story of a young boy's extraordinary journey and the people that changed him forever. Based on the true experiences of John H. Groberg in 1950's Tonga, it explores the heart of what makes life worth living. The movie opened in selected theaters in Salt Lake City and Orem on December 14, and will open throughout Utah on December 21st.

The Stable Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information please call 801-355-6872.
