For the fourth year, Miami New Times dedicates a full issue to the innate brilliance and beauty of our city’s population. We’ve gathered artists, athletes, attorneys, and the king of a footwear empire — among others — to display the diversity and wonder that the tropics offer the world. We’ll wager that after eyeballing these 30 paragons of perfection, you’ll be twice as proud to live here. Photography by Stian Roenning.
