Carl Juste — Under the threat of persecution, Haitian-born Carl-Philippe Juste and his family were forced to flee their homeland in 1965.   Settling in Miami’s Haitian community, Juste flourished academically and attended the University of Miami.  He vigorously pursued photojournalism and since 1991, has worked as a photojournalist for The Miami Herald.  Juste has covered many international and national stories for The Miami Herald also carrying out extensive assignments for the Miami Herald, in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq.  In addition, he has worked on three documentary projects for the Historical Museum of Southern Florida: “At the Crossroad: Afro-Cuban Orisha Arts in Miami” (2001), “South American Musical Traditions in Miami” (2002), “Haitian Community Arts: Images” by Iris PhotoCollective and funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
