Miami, Real and Imagined

The Photography of Hank Klein

Available Now


When former photographer and commercial real estate executive Hank Klein suffered a debilitating stroke in 2012, experimenting with photographic effects became an important part of his recovery. Viewed through a Leica lens and Klein's vision and imagination, more than 200 colorful Miami scenes invite readers to view the same subject matter in two ways—one as a traditional photograph and one reinterpreted with color, texture, and cropping. From the landmark Freedom Tower to an Everglades alligator, from Herzog & de Meuron's snazzy new Perez Art Museum to the old Vagabond Motel, striking compositions become more complex with the aid of technology and Klein's haiku-like commentary.
