On Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 7 pm, 10 advanced photojournalism students from the IPC Visual Lab will present a series of photographs in an exhibition titled, “Carnival of Color.” The exhibit, curated by Pulitzer Prize winning, Miami Herald Photojournalist Carl Juste, aims to document the vibrant, colorful life characteristic of South Florida and a portion will be a photo essay, Faces of Carnival Miami 2013.


“Color is emotions wrapped in feelings, a beauty given to this world that we cannot imagine ever living without” expresses Juste in his Curator’s statement. “Color makes our lives rich in its intensity by gathering ideas in its strata and depth while defining more than just a mood, hence color is memory.”


The exhibiting photographers are Nancy Ancrum; Anthony Harris; Tomas Hauff; Nina Jackson; Jennifer Kay; Andriana Mereuta; Jenny Romney; Marco Tejada; Zeus Shama; Gina Valenti. Some students are already working in media professions while others wish to further develop either professional or recreational photojournalism skills. The IPC Visual Lab offers a 10-week photography, total immersion program which is designed to provide instruction and hands-on training in the art of digital photography. Students are encouraged to be creative, but are also taught to think of each project as a concise statement of artistic, documentary, and/or journalistic intent.


“Carnival of Color” will be on display at the ACND Gallery of Art at Archbishop Curley Notre Dame Prep, 4949 NE 2nd Ave.  The Opening is free, but an RSVP is required to news@acnd.net.  The exhibit will run through December 8th with special hours during Art Basel Miami Beach/Miami Art Week.

Regular gallery hours are Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with additional hours by request to (305) 751-8367 *22 or email news@acnd.net. More information about the exhibit can be found on the Facebook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/740040519415717/ or visit www.acnd.net.

About Carl Juste – Graduate of Archbishop Curley Notre Dame Prep, 1981:


Under threat of persecution, Haitian-born Carl Phillipe Juste fled with his family from Haiti in 1965. Settling in Miami's Haitian community, Juste flourished academically and won a scholarship to the University of Miami. Although he intended to be an engineer, he could not ignore the photographic inner voice that had spoken to him since childhood. Responding to a clear relationship he shared with the visual world, Juste vigorously pursued photojournalism and since 1991, has served his community through his work at the Miami Herald. He has received numerous awards for his work from Picture of the Year, Pulitzer Prize, Society for News Design, Best of Photojournalism, and the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award. Juste is founder of both the IPC Visual Lab and Iris Photo Collective.
