about

Take a striking journey with photographer Paul Clemence through Miami's South Beach, home to some of the world's most extraordinary Art Deco architecture. Highlighting the elements that create and define the Art Deco style, these 64 black-and-white photographs capture the emotion and express the spirit of South Beach. A cross between a fine art photography and a travel book, this collection establishes South Beach's stunning visual identity, showcasing the city's landmark hotels, residential buildings, and dazzling cityscapes. Be amazed at how Clemence captures the drama of sunlight on geometric forms and relates to us the power of architecture. A foreword written by local historian and tour guide Michael Hughes gives insight into the development of South Beach from its early days as a mangrove swamp to its current trend-setting status and the role that Art Deco architecture has played in the city's renewal. Statements from active community members paint a vivid picture of daily life in the city and give readers an understanding of the city's emotional role in the lives of its residents. This book is the perfect souvenir, and a must-have for lovers of South Beach, Art Deco, and fine art.
Paul Clemence is originally from Brazil, where he received a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture from Universidade Federal do Rio De Janeiro. Since 1990 he has been living in and photographing Miami.
