Starting Ahead: Chung - Exploration Station

Starting Ahead is a photographic exhibition in support of The Children’s Movement of Florida, a collective of citizens insisting that the youngest among us be our state’s highest priority. Starting Ahead features the work of three prominent South Florida photojournalists: André Chung, C.W. Griffin & Carl-Philippe Juste and is located in the North Terminal near Gate D31, just past security checkpoint. 

The future of Florida and our nation rests in the hands of our youngest children. Yet, a third of all children in Florida will fall behind long before they meet their kindergarten teacher. It is in our best interest to ensure that all children, regardless of the circumstances into which they are born, have a real chance to achieve their fullest potential and dreams.
