Books & Books Bookstore in Coral Gables is proud to showcase “Small Worlds,” a stunning exhibit that captures the soul of nature and wildlife as seen through the eyes of acclaimed conservation photographer Phoenix. From the majesty and frailty of the Florida Everglades to the haunting beauty of Ireland, each fine art photograph shares a story of our collective small world. Miami native and Fort Lauderdale resident Phoenix saw within many of her larger, collected works compositions that fit the popular square shape. Thus began her experiment with the “small worlds” 12 inch X 12 inch pieces. Now, her new solo exhibit of 14 photos will be on display in the gallery located inside Books & Books Bookstore in Coral Gables. The exhibit runs from September 4 to September 30, 2019. A free opening reception with the artist will take place on September 6, from 7-10 pm, during Coral Gables Gallery Night, the first Friday of the month, 265 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33134.
