Andy Sweet is widely known for his portrayal of the aging Jewish seniors in Miami Beach's Art Deco District, many of them Holocaust survivors. Sweet felt passionate about giving a "voice" to these survivors and that nostalgic time. Through Sweet's photos, it was clear these quirky seniors intended to savor every moment of life in this close-knit community. He had the vision and insight to capture them before the district ultimately became touristy, sterile and gentrified.
"Our early interest in photographing a city we love was like a magnet that kept drawing us back...a city that could be observed and preserved through photographic documentation", Andy Sweet is quoted telling The Miami News.
