In his first solo exhibition, street photographer Terence Price II captures intimate moments of daily life in his Miami Gardens neighborhood. With a series of black-and-white images, Price presents an environment where residents struggle with poverty, violence and limited class mobility, but also enjoy the simple, joyful pleasures of family and community.

“I feel like it’s important to change the narrative that is placed on us and what people expect from us growing up in these neighborhoods,” Price says. 

Price’s show, “Dancing in the Absence of Pain,” opens Jan. 16 and runs through March 31 at ArtCenter/South Florida in Miami Beach, where Price is a resident artist. The exhibition was curated by Diana Nawi, a former Perez Art Museum Miami curator.

Shooting primarily with film, Price offers a quiet meditation on his life growing up in one of Miami’s most overlooked suburbs. Street signs and run-down government housing projects serve as a backdrop for intimate portraits that aim to showcase their subjects’ multifaceted experiences. “Dancing in the Absence of Pain” is Price’s attempt to portray his culture in a rare, hopeful light. 

The opening reception for “Dancing in the Absence of Pain” takes place 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16, at ArtCenter/South Florida, 924 Lincoln Road, in Miami Beach. Call 305-674-8278 or go to ArtCenterSF.org.
