On Wednesday, October 10, at 7:15 p.m., New York University’s King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center (53 Washington Square South) will host the opening of an exhibition showcasing work by award-winning Spanish photographer Kike Calvo. The exhibition, based on his new book Habitats (Mira Editores, 2007), with forewords by Jean-Michel Cousteau and David Doublilet, will run through December 31. Free and open to the public, the event also features a book presentation and a slide show. For further information, call 212.998.3650 or visit www.nyu.edu/kjc.

Habitats is a compilation of the photographer’s work from around the world. It is a visual journey of the discovery of our planet with a special emphasis on the landscapes of Spain and Latin America. As a photojournalist, Calvo has traveled the world, from the Galápagos Islands to the Arctic, from Australia to Bolivia, from Hong Kong to Portugal. His work has been exhibited twice at the UN (for the first time when he was only 25), at the Art Institutes of Fort Lauderdale and Phoenix; the Institute Cervantes in New York; and at the Pablo Serrano Museum and Pro-40 Art Gallery in Spain.

The exhibition is made possible partly with the support of the Consulate General of Spain in New York.
