"Enschede": A city in The Netherlands where in May of 2000 a storage facility housing fireworks exploded killing 25 people in the village
"Lake Okeechobee": Portraits of people whom have made Lake Okeechobee, Florida their work their home and their playground while the course of time has had its impacts on the environment and the lake's water supply during one of the worst reccessions.
It is with this portfolio that Mr. LaBarbera was the recipient of the 2014 South Florida Consortium to be held at The Bass Museum, Miami, Florida in early 2015. The date to be announced.
"Youth Hunters": While photographing the series "Lake Okeechobee" I wandered into the world of youth sporting activities which included the education of youngsters with firearms. If it were not for the willingness and understanding of these youngsters these portraits would not be possible. I therefore, would like to thank each and everyone for standing for their portrait.
