- Miami: a special city and its hustle and bustle are presented in modern and humorous photography
- Colourful and a little shrill, but never boring - the pictures of the art metropolis are full of stories
- Whether Ocean Drive, Miami Beach or Art Miami, after New York, Miami is the most internationally visited metropolis in the USA
Miami, a city truly kissed by the sun! Born as an artist’s haven by the sea, the Sunshine City has evolved into a conglomerate of diverse cultures. It’s the third-richest city in the USA, boasting one of the three largest skylines in North America. Here, South Americans meet Eastern Europeans, artists mingle with athletes, and models cross paths with pop stars. Tony Kelly captures this vibrant mix that makes the city truly special in his aptly named photo book, Miami.
Kelly’s photographs tell a tale of glamour, sun, and vibrant joie de vivre. Through a colourful visual language, he presents unfiltered impressions of the sun-soaked metropolis of Florida. Beauty, consumerism, and luxury practically leap from the pages, sparking an immediate desire in the viewer to hop on a plane and visit the Magic City.
However, Miami is not just a coffee table book filled with captivating photographs. In his image selection, Kelly injects humour. Often, he crafts ironic scenes and doesn’t shy away from playfully challenging stereotypes about Vice City. Between awe and longing, Kelly’s entertaining photo book elicits a mischievous smile from the viewer as they flip through its pages.
For those yearning to inhale the atmosphere of Miami, steeped in beauty and high society, Kelly’s photographs provide the perfect blueprint.
