Miami, December 12, 2013 -
Miami Dade College’s (MDC) InterAmerican Campus will showcase the beauty of underwater life as part of its student nature photography exhibit, South Florida’s Water Wonderland, at 6 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 9, at the Campus Art Gallery.
On display will be the selected pieces from student winners who participated in a campus-wide photo challenge, in collaboration with the Campus’ Student Life Department, its art institute, and its Earth Ethics Institute. The collection also features the work of nature photographer and conservationist Brian F. Call.
The acclaimed photographer accompanied the students on a snorkeling trip with Reef Roamer out of Key Largo, and offered tips and tricks. They also learned about coral reef ecology and conservation from the Earth Ethics Institute’s Michael Matthews, and snorkeled at the John Pennekamp State Park.
