This editorial shoot for Forbes Magazine during the construction of the new Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). This was a interesting shoot logistically since the museum was still under construction and there was no power in many of the rooms and no elevators for equipment. My assistant Joe was a trooper caring the Profoto Pro B up and down flights. I too had to carry precious equipment, the Forbes writer form NYC Morgan was wear her chic suede heels and I gave her a piggyback ride across the active muddy construction site to clean ground. Being a photographer and a Boy Scout you never know what duties may present themselves.
The shoot went great and Mr Perez was an excellent subject to work with, especially since we had limited time with him. Here is a link to the article.
Touring PAMM With Billionaire Jorge Perez
Billionaire real estate developer Jorge Perez donated $40 million to the Miami Art Museum in 2011. The gift, half in art from his personal collection and half in cash, was bequeathed on the condition that the institution be renamed after Perez in perpetuity. The resulting Perez Art Museum Miami, housed in a new building, will open its doors in December 2013 during the Art Basel Miami Beach festival. Many works once housed inside the billionaire philanthropist’s residence now grace the walls.
