“Caribbean Carnival – USA: The People and The Passion”, a photography exhibit

Exhibit on display, May 25 – June 30 at Calumet Photographic, 1135 N. Highland Ave, Hollywood, CA

From May 25 to June 30, 2012, Calumet Gallery in Hollywood will host the photography exhibit, “Caribbean Carnival – USA: The People and The Passion”, distilled from a five-year project of Norman Reneau, photographing the Miami-Broward Carnival, an event which has become one of the largest festivals in the U.S.

While depicting the exotic and extravagant costumes and the bacchanalian revelry traditionally associated with such events, this exhibit succeeds best by immersing the viewer in the passionate interpersonal experiences and the intense emotional exuberance as evidenced on the faces of the “mas players”, as the carnival participants are called in the Caribbean countries. The faces in Mr. Reneau’s photographs also highlight the wide color gamut of the ethnic mosaic that is the Caribbean and Caribbean-American people.

The exhibit is on display from May 25 to June 30, 2012 at Calumet Photographic, 1135 N. Highland Avenue, Hollywood, California 90038  Daily 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.  A reception to celebrate “Caribbean Carnival – USA: The People and The Passion” will be held at Calumet Photographic on Friday, June 8, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.   RSVP at nfrimagepr@aol.com.   Info:  Norman Reneau 323 290-0810
