Before the high rises, the nightlife, and the fashion scene, Miami’s South Beach was a retirement haven for American Jews. In The Last Resort, photographer Gary Monroe presents a collection of images that preserve his observations of this vanished time.
Filled with vibrant images of Barnhill’s unique creations, precursors to the popular landscape art of the Highwaymen and others, this book showcases a little-known artist whose inventive techniques--particularly his uranium-dye coloring--merit a place in the story of American photography.
The days are long past when tourists could buy an original landscape painting on the side of the road for as little as $50 dollars--sometimes before the paint dried. This book of postcards allows you to experience the thrill of owning (miniature) versions of these exquisite paintings.
