A PECULIAR PARADISE: PHOTOGRAPHS OF FLORIDA IN 1981
April 3 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Join us on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at 10:30am at HistoryMiami, 101 West Flagler Street, Miami, as we view the exhibit “A Peculiar Paradise: Florida Photographs by Nathan Benn.”
On assignment for National Geographic, Nathan Benn photographed across the State of Florida at the dawn of the 1980s a time made famous by Miami’s narcotics-related crime wave and influx of newcomers from the Caribbean. After nearly 40 years, Benn has revisited his Florida archives. A Peculiar Paradise exhibits nearly 100 photographs, as well as artifacts related to his 20-year career at National Geographic. His pictures feature, among other topics, Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood, extreme affluence, nightlife, immigration, work cultures, tourist attractions, remarkable Floridians, Dundee’s 5th Street Gym, and the narcotics war. Come experience Benn’s images reflecting a dynamic and unique time in Florida’s history.
Lunch follows the event at La Loggia Restaurant, 68 West Flagler Street, Miami. Cost: $35 including tax and tip for a 3-course lunch including tea and coffee. Cash only.
