Florida Wildlife Corridor: The Photographs of Carlton Ward Jr.
General Event Information
Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition: The Photographs of Carlton Ward Jr. will take visitors on a virtual expedition from the Everglades to the Okefenokee. The exhibition will feature a collection of large-format images taken by Ward, along with maps, video footage, audio clips, news reports, and equipment used by team members during the expedition.
The exhibit will also look at similar explorations undertaken by earlier explorers and naturalists William Bartram and Mark Catesby, both of whom traveled through Florida’s interior in the 1700s.
Ward is an eighth-generation Floridian whose photographs have appeared in such publications as Audubon, Smithsonian, Nature Conservancy and National Wildlife. His 2009 photo book, Florida Cowboys, won a silver medal in the Florida Book Awards, and Popular Photography Magazine featured him as one of three photographers working to save vanishing America.
Florida Wildlife Expedition: The Photographs of Carlton Ward Jr., is on exhibit at the Tampa Bay History Center through May 5, and is sponsored by The Mosaic Company, The Kimmins Family Foundation, WUSF Public Media, and the Tampa Bay Times.
