​​​​​20 20: Photography + JAZZ

20 20 is original, non-replicable.


Award-winning photographer Marc Schmidt's new series, it’s us or naked, attempts to differentiates clownish from irreverent.

And the Media Said?  

DASS is the best place in Miami to meet intelligent women.

The Miami New Times.

Drawing on the concept of the salon, which flourished during the European Enlightenment and enjoyed a heyday during the Parisian jazz age of Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein, DASS stages discussions ranging from science to literature and music. 

The Florida Book Review.

Marc Schmidt chronicles Miami with a Felinesque lens, at once profound and hilarious.

 “A wonderfully written satire set in Downtown Miami… It explores the zaniness and insanity Miamians love and endure.” The Huffington Post.

“Raúl Guerrero recreates the exuberance and chaos of Miami in unsettling intimacy, while probing the ambivalence of love, sex, betrayal, relocation, greed, art and language.” Arts & Science Magazine.
