Before roller blades and silicone dominated the boardwalk, South Beach was a self-contained haven for a tight-knit community of (predominantly) Jewish retirees. Young photographers Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe were there to capture it all—from the candy-colored swimwear to glamorous New Years’ Eve parties. With narration by the likes of Pulitzer Prize-winner Edna Buchanan and filmmaker Kelly Reichardt, these striking images span a decade to create a vibrant portrait of a lost cultural era.
