Miami: Contemporary Visions From A Tropical Jungleland
The images you will see in the book Miami - Jungleland reflect the experience and feelings of photographer Alessandro Sarno, so you won’t necessarily find in it all of the iconic tourist spots. On the contrary, you will encounter unassuming corners enlightened by a special light, or two homeless people sleeping hugged up to each other on a park bench. It’s a book about the authenticity of everyday life scattered around Miami’s colorful neighborhoods.
The partnership with HistoryMiami Museum brings a collection of stories about Miamians and their lives, what they love, feel, and remember of living there. These stories will give you even deeper insight into Miami. Stories that are particularly dear to Sarno are highlighted. You will read a sad story about the captive orca Lolita, about establishing Little Bahamas in the Grove, and about how the allure of Miami Beach began—as told firsthand by one who helped create the magnetic magic. The tropical visions, poetry, and stories told here will transport you deeper into the magic that is Miami.
