The Last Resort

The Last Resort

Not that long ago, Miami Beach was home to America’s largest colony of Jewish retirees. The Last Resort tells the almost forgotten story of the rise, fall and rise again, of this sunburned paradise from the first influx of Jews after WWII to their “second exodus” in the 1980s-90s. But it also tells the story of Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe, two young, ambitious, gifted photographers determined to capture images of the aging Jewish community before it disappeared. Today, those images are both invaluable historical records and magnificent works of visual art. The Last Resort is nostalgic, informative and immensely appealing.
