(West Palm Beach, FL – February 25, 2013)  Fatima NeJame, president and chief executive officer of the world-renowned Palm Beach Photographic Centre (PBPC), today announced that the museum’s next exhibition will open on March 14 and run through June 11.

"This is an important exhibition,” says Ms. NeJame. “The images from Carlton Ward’s 2012 photographic odyssey and the story they tell about Florida’s profound, natural heritage are truly extraordinary. This exhibition will provide a rare view into our state’s interior, an incredible landscape that must be preserved for future generations to know and appreciate.”

The Exhibition by Carlton Ward Jr.

In 2012, photographer and explorer, Carlton Ward Jr. led a small team through a 100-day, 1,000-mile trek -- traveling by kayak, mountain bike, horse and by foot -- from Everglades National Park north to Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in southern Georgia.  The exhibition is the legacy of that journey.  More than 50 large photographs and maps document the landscape, flora and fauna of Florida’s interior and illustrate the interconnected, natural corridor that should be preserved for wildlife and future generations.

Carlton Ward Jr is an environmental photojournalist and eighth generation Floridian focused on his home state’s living heritage. His work has been published in magazines including Audubon, Smithsonian, Geo and Nature Conservancy. His 2009 book, Florida Cowboys, won a silver medal in the Florida Book Awards and was featured in Popular Photography. Mr. Ward is a founding member of the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP), president of the Legacy Institute for Nature & Culture (LINC), and a grantee of the National Geographic Society.
