Carolina Global Photography Exhibition 

When: Jan. 9-March 8 2013

For its 13th annual Carolina Global Photography Competition, which showcases outstanding foreign fieldwork by UNC students, staff and alumni, the UNC Center for Global Initiatives hooked into the university's current campus-wide theme, "Water in Our World." A special "Best Water" prize went to Zoe Wolszon for her photograph of men bathing elephants at an Indian agroforestry training center, but the world's most precious resource inevitably flows through other entries as well. It hangs like a mirror in third-place winner Zhenhao Bao's reflective "Tree in the Water," which takes us to the wetlands of China's Yunnan Province, and rolls to the horizon in first-place winner Cam Carrithers' celebratory "Garifuna Culture in Belize," which the local documentarian has covered for years. "The Garifuna culture originated after ships occupied with Africans crashed in the Caribbean," he writes. It's a moving reminder of how water not only divides us by its scarcity, but also connects us in its plenty. The winning photos and other selections are on display through March 8. Check out the reception and awards ceremony, featuring a lecture by Ken Harper on empowering Liberian storytellers, in the Center's Nelson Mandela Auditorium from 6–8 p.m.—Brian Howe
