TAMPA — Eighth-generation Floridian Carlton Ward Jr., known for his striking environmental photographs seen in Smithsonian, National Geographic, and other publications, recently opened a gallery to the public. The Carlton Ward Gallery in Tampa, where Ward is based, displays about 30 of his award-winning fine-art prints from assignments and adventures around the state. Locations include the Everglades, Gulf Coast, Tampa Bay, Florida cowboys, and his most recent project, the Florida Wildlife Corridor. In 2012, Ward and two scientists trekked 1,000 miles from the Everglades to Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia to document the state of wildlife habitats, watersheds, and ranches. “The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition” book and DVD also are available at the gallery.
