Miami, Florida - Twenty-five internationally celebrated photojournalists have
contributed 50 fine-art images, captured during the historical events worldwide,
to an unprecedented exhibition at the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery.

I Witness explores conflict through the images of these artists, whose work reflects
personal, internal, psychosocial, military, cultural or religious experiences, while maintaining the truthful and  ethical principles of journalism.

In this spirit, I Witness - curated by photojournalist Carl Juste and gallerist Bernice Steinbaum - hopes to engage the international art community with images that merge aesthetic principles of composition, texture and color, with elements of photojournalism, like timeliness, objectivity
and narration.  This exhibition seeks to underwrite the work of artists who are photojournalists and to support the value of freedom of the press and open government.
