MIAMI (Nov. 24, 2014) – At The FIU College of Architecture + The Arts | Miami Beach Urban Studios, award-winning architectural and documentary photographer, entrepreneur, art collector, and gallerist Daniel Azoulay is exhibiting PAMM Under Construction. The exhibition, curated by Instructor of Architecture at FIU Claudia Busch (also a principal at Berenblum Busch Architecture), presents a series of photographs Azoulay took during the construction of the Pérez Art Museum Miami, which opened a year ago this December.
Much like the city he now calls home, Azoulay’s photographic career has gone through several metamorphoses. Picture taking has been the steadfast part of his professional DNA. From studies in photography to prolific fashion shoots, his hand always clutched the camera. Azoulay finally succumbed to what he dreamed of documenting from the very beginning. Architecture and design have held a magic spell over the photographer [as] does the magic city that kept Azoulay busy with endless documentary opportunities to focus his lens on its ever-changing skyline – like the development of Perez Art Museum, Frost Museum of Science, and Miami Tunnel Project.
Azoulay documents architecture with extravagant detail transmitting the architectural beauty while focusing on form, lights, and shadows revealing unique angles and perspective. He is an active member of the art community in Miami lecturing, conducting portfolio reviews at major art schools, and sponsoring photography scholarships at universities. Much of his current work is also part of his philanthropic activity; proceeds from his books are donated toward scholarships and programs that support young talent.
PAMM Under Construction opened on Thursday, November 6th, 2014, with an introduction by Azoulay and a lecture about the photographs by Fernando Vilela of John Moriarty & Associates. During the week of Art Basel | Miami Beach, the Miami Beach Urban Studios will host a special reception for Azoulay’s exhibition, inviting enthusiastic visitors from across the globe for the Miami art community’s most exciting time of the year.
An Art Basel Reception will be held for PAMM Under Construction on Friday, December 5th, 2014 from 6PM-8PM at The College of Architecture + The Arts | Miami Beach Urban Studios: 420 Lincoln Rd. Suite 440, Miami Beach, FL 33139. Free and open to the public. All of the works in Azoulay’s exhibition are available for purchase through a donation to The FIU College of Architecture + The Arts.
