PB PHOTO CENTRE's Next Exhibition 'The BIG Picture' Opens May 18

 
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - May 10, 2023 - PRLog -- (West Palm Beach, FL – May 8, 2023) Fatima NeJame, president and chief executive officer of the world-renowned Palm Beach Photographic Centre (PBPC), today reminded friends and supporters that its next major exhibition opens next week:

The BIG Picture: It's Been a Minute!

Exhibition by Award-Winning ZUMA Press Photojournalists

Opening May 18 and Running Through July 30


GOOD: The BIG wave ohana spirit, honoring 'Eddie Would Go!' aka 'The Eddi Aikau Big Wave Invitational'—widely considered to be "the Super Bowl of Surfing." The legend of Eddie Aikau is an important part of Hawaiian Culture. Eddie was not just the first lifeguard for the entire North Shore, he saved over 1,000 people throughout his career, occasionally braving waves that reached 30 feet or higher when no one else would go out. "Spectacular images from the most recent event will open this exhibition because it's important to keep Eddie's legacy alive and inspire the next generation to live like he did," says Mc Kiernan.

BAD: Mother Nature's power was unleashed on Turkey and Syria through "the earthquake of the century," while Vladimir Putin's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine was riddled with war crimes and crimes against humanity. The impact of both events—natural and man-made—can still be felt globally, economically, and emotionally.

HOPE: What the victims of both earthquakes and war share is eternal hope, rising from miracle rescue stories and inspirational tales of human resilience—stunning, soul-searing images captured by ZUMA Press photographers.

"As the world's dreaded pandemic continues to wane, people need to come out and experience images that need to be seen, spanning the planet," invites NeJame. "These are moments in time that will stop you in your tracks and stay with you forever, as the photographers' unique talent and skills bring you to the heart of the matter at hand, with grace, respect and chilling honesty."

"This new exhibition captures humanity at its darkest hours and witnesses others rise above and beyond, showing that hope never dies," adds Mc Kiernan. "Thanks to these courageous photographers on the frontlines of history, we can see and share the good, bad and beautiful of it all at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre—with a very special thank you to those who trusted ZUMA Press photojournalists to tell their stories."
