Imagine this, you are one of Miami’s hottest DJs, booking gigs at the likes of LIV, Miami Broward Carnival and Jazz In The Gardens Music Festival. Life is great! Unbeknownst to you, your last gig would be alongside the official DJ of the Miami Heat, DJ Irie and the City of Miami Beach for what would have been a Spring Break concert series for the history books. Then, in what seemed like the blink of an eye, your entire world shuts down. Restaurants and bars close, hotels and night clubs lock their doors. Enter the era of Covid-19.

This is the story of Rahsaan "Fly Guy" Alexander. Having amassed a 10-year career as the “high energy" Rahsaan made a name for himself in the South Florida entertainment industry. With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, Rahsaan’s career had taken a devastating blow. As we closed out the first month of quarantine, a scary reality began to set in; he may never return to DJ in the beloved clubs and bars on Miami Beach. In a moment of solitude and deep inflection, Rahsaan made a decision that would ultimately change the course of the remainder of his year. He charged himself with the task of reigniting the zest and enthusiasm he once had for an old love of his, photography.

Having been raised in Dade-County, Rahsaan has a unique vantage point into the unknown Miami, this project seeks to share that with the world. There is something about the purity of a monochrome photo that Rahsaan has so vividly captured throughout these unprecedented times. To Miami, with Love is a photojournalistic art exhibit that highlights the story and emotion of Miami’s new “normal” quarantine and pandemic life; that can only be captured by someone who has an organic connection to their surroundings. This art exhibit will display 10 images from his 256-page coffee table book of photography also titled “To Miami, with Love”. We invite you to experience a night of culture and visual art as Rahsaan “Fly Guy” Alexander unveils his photography exhibit “To Miami, with Love”. *To curb the spread of COVID-19 this is a socially distanced event; capacity is limited, and masks are required.
