As an image maker, for me, Miami is all about light and color. Every time I head out to make images I am continually surprised by the quality of the light and the color of the landscape. Whether it’s in Miami Beach, Little Haiti, Wynwood or the Everglades, around every corner there are surprises. That is what makes living and working here so special. The beauty is in returning to the same places but seeing different things. Whether it’s the weather or the time of day, whether you are flying solo or with a group of friends.

Miami is a melting pot, and all of those influences and cultures have brought their color here. That has made Miami a fascinating place. What has made Miami that way? Is it the heat? The people? The landscape? It really doesn’t matter because it is what it is. Miami is not easy, but if you put your time in, that enigma will reveal itself.

Shhhh, don’t tell anyone. It is crowded enough already.

    Half a century ago, we saw the spark of powerful ideas that changed the face of America. Some became legislation, such as the War on Poverty.
