In the Gallery, Andy Sweet’s South Beach

April 14, 2023 - June 4, 2023

Andy Sweet’s South Beach
April 15 – June 04, 2023


In the late 1970s, Miami native Andy Sweet began photographing the elderly Jewish population of South Beach. Sweet was in his early 20s and was drawn to this group that was familiar to him from his youth. The photos capture an often-forgotten but important moment in Miami’s cultural heritage. Eccentricity, fun, glamor, and kitsch combine in these wonderful celebratory images – just in time for our own beach season.
