Miami Book Fair kicks off this year on Sunday, November 12th, with a photo exhibition for HURRICANE, a new book by Miami photographer, Barry Fellman, with spectacular photos that transform devastation into art. The book includes essays by hurricane hero Bryan Norcross, and Vicki Goldberg, art critic of the NY Times.
HURRICANE commemorates the 25th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, the most damaging hurricane to hit the US in nearly a century. Barry Fellman’s powerful images, many never seen before, show the devastation wreaked by the Category 5 storm at Kendall-Tamiami Airport. Just blocks away Country Walk, a residential community of over 1,700 homes, was completely decimated at this pivotal moment in Florida history.
Fellman’s photo exhibition will be featured when MDC president Eduardo Padrón opens the Miami Book Fair November 12, and is the only book with an exhibition at the Fair. Large scale photos will displayed at the main event venue The Porch throughout the week, and there will be a conversation with author and Bryan Norcross on October 18 at 10:30 am.
