Photographer's Note

I lived in Miami for 4 years during the late 90s and early 00's.

Last weekend I went back to sign the sale of the house I bought there when I first arrived.

It was a very intense personal experience, as this time it felt like I was turning the page on my North American life for good.

Miami was very good to me, I leae behind some good friends (not all living in Miami as its a city that many people just pass through on their way to somewhere else) and many many memories.

Miami is often called the northernmost city of Latin America. About 60% of the metro population is hispanic. Before the late 1950s it was a quiet southern city.

Following the Cuban revolution, most of Cuba's upper and middle classes moved there and their dynamism pushed the city forward. These initial waves of immigration were followed by cubans of poorer backgrounds, and by waves of other immigrants: Nicaraguans, Colombians, Peruvians, Argentinians, Venezueleans, and many others.

Today many mulitnational corporations have their headquarters in Miami.
