Miami My Venice, lovely photo essay is a journey to a timeless city of canals and waterways

MIAMI MY VENICE, a Photo Essay by Rafael Manresa

Manresa's lovely photo essay is a journey to a timeless city of canals and waterways, evocative of and yet contradictory to Venice. In MIAMI, which is accompanied by a wise and sensitive text, Manresa says that if Venice is the serenity, Miami is the agitation. Yet his images of Miami have much of the same ageless, meditative quality as Venice. His distressed images of Miami in feeling resemble the palazzos of Venice. The titles, in Italian further the link. Below are some images from the ebook, which can be purchased and the images viewed at https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/miami-my-venice/id624066113?mt=11.
