“Daniel Azoulay is an award winning architectural and documentary photographer, entrepreneur, art collector, and gallerist. Much like the city he now calls home, Azoulay’s photographic career has gone through several metamorphoses. Picture taking has been the steadfast part of his professional DNA. From studies in photography to prolific fashion shoots, his hand always clutched the camera. Azoulay finally succumbed to what he dreamed of documenting from the very beginning. Architecture and design have held a magic spell over the photographer [as] does the magic city that kept Azoulay busy with endless documentary opportunities to focus his lens on its ever-changing skyline – like the development of Perez Art Museum, Frost Museum of Science, and Miami Tunnel Project. Azoulay documents architecture with extravagant detail transmitting the architectural beauty while focusing on form, lights, and shadows revealing unique angles and perspective. He is an active member of the art community in Miami lecturing, conducting portfolio reviews at major art schools, and sponsoring photography scholarships at universities. Much of his current work is also part of his philanthropic activity; proceeds from his books are donated toward scholarships and programs that support young talent.” (Source: Daniel Azoulay)
