The Leica Lounge is a lecture series hosted by Leica Store Miami which features presentations by local photographers, editors, gallerists and educators. Held monthly, these free events are designed to create and inspire the local photography community through sharing images and exchanging ideas.

The photography book contains a collection of 29 color images, created over the course of 5 years, covering a vast area of South Florida, from ancestral territory by airboat to the boardwalk of Six-Mile Cypress Slough Preserve.
