Miami Girls

Miami, United States

60 Portraits - March 16, 2017

Statement

In the span of the last 30 years Miami transformed from a tourist destination into a top-tier global city with one of the nation’s fastest growing economies. Despite that transformation, the general perception remains in the beach-and-beauty mode of decades back. Miami women have to contend with the strongest negative misconceptions created by the hypersexualized image of “Miami girls” popularized by the media and perpetuated as public opinion.

MANIFESTO

We are here to tell the story of our city. Through the women who built it. The women who shape it. The women who lead it. The women who identify issues that matter and challenge the status quo. We are intergenerational. We are every race. And religion. And neighborhood. And income level. And sector. Our Miami is strong. It is beautiful. It is diverse. And it is female.
