LEICA LOUNGE: with Paul Morris Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Leica Lounge with Paul Morris

TOMORROW! Thursday, October 1st, 2015   |   7:00 - 8:30 PM   |   RSVP

Join us on Thursday night for our monthly Leica Lounge with aerial photographer Paul Morris. Paul will discuss aerial photography, the use of drones as well as his documentary project about the Miami Circle.
Above Miami - 30 Years of a Changing Skyline
Over the years of creating aerial images in South Florida, I have seen and captured enormous changes to our urban landscape. As the cycle of real estate boom and bust plays out, the downtown cityscape shows the most transformation. With each cycle we get another layer of high-rise buildings and a visual alteration to the skyline with ever-taller buildings replacing outdated structures from previous decades.
The indigenous people of South Florida, the Tequesta Indians, also knew prime real estate when they saw it. They chose to settle at the mouth of the Miami River about 2,000 years ago. Excavation for a new development at the mouth of the river unearthed an amazing trove of artifacts and structural remnants that will soon disappear under a fifty story modern skyscraper. Before this record of our history disappeared forever, construction was temporarily halted for the archaeologists to record the findings.  We were honored to be asked by Bob Carr of Archaeological and Historical Conservancy to document the site using our drone technology to capture images and video. We were struck by the contrast of documenting this first century settlement using our twenty-first century technology.

The Leica Lounge is a lecture series hosted by Leica Store Miami which features presentations by local members of the photography community. Held monthly, these free events are designed to create and inspire the local photography community through sharing images and exchanging ideas.
As always, the Leica Lounge is sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery. Bring a friend and try a sampling of Brooklyn's lastest brews.
