South Beach - Miami 1989
Size: 193 cm x 122 cm (75 x 48 inches)
This was the first large photocollage I did when I was living in California. At that time, South Beach was not yet the trendy tourist destination it now is. Some of the people lying on the beach were actually photographed in Los Angeles, while the seagulls are even further away from home, these were photographed off the south coast of England. This picture was used in the Robert Redford/Michelle Pfeiffer film, “Up Close and Personal”, which was shot in Miami. At the last moment, the producers realized that they needed a large Miami image for some shots which were being finalized in LA, and asked me if they could rent this image for a couple of days.
