It’s that time of month again! PhotoNight is tomorrow night at 7:30 in Carroll 111 (the main lecture hall) on UNC’s campus. Here is a link to LaBelle’s latest project.

Below is the official press release. It should be a good one, and it’s probably the last of the semester.



Carolina’s student chapter of the National Press Photographers Association presents PhotoNight with photographer Dave LaBelle in the Carroll Hall auditorium from 7:30-9 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17. The event is free and open to the public.

During his 40-year career, LaBelle has worked for 20 newspapers and magazines in nine states, including the Anchorage Times, The Sacramento Bee and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, where he was assistant managing editor for photography.

At 19, he was the NPPA Region 10 Photographer of the Year, an honor he repeated the next two years.

LaBelle helped build Western Kentucky University’s prestigious photojournalism program during his ten years as a faculty member. No less than seven of his former students have won Pulitzer Prizes and as many are professors teaching at respected universities.

PhotoNight is an opportunity for students, professionals and enthusiasts to come together and share work. The evening is designed to give photographers the chance to learn from each other and develop their own styles. PhotoNights are held around the world, providing an avenue for the enhancement of the photojournalism community.
