Jewish Retirees Photographed in Miami in the 80s

As a portrait photographer, Gay Block began in 1973 with portraits of her own affluent Jewish community in Houston and later expanded this study to include girls at summer camp and this series on Jewish retirees living South Miami Beach. Her recently released photography book, About Love, is a retrospective, highlighting Block’s thirty-five year career and includes never before published work. This is a selection from the chapter, ‘Miami, South Beach’. [via Feature Shoot]
