Laura Paresky laughingly describes herself as a graphic designer with a camera, but her crystalline images have carried the message of Miami style to the world through numerous prominent magazines and gallery exhibitions. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Paresky says her feelings about South Florida are best summed up by a Londoner who was heard to say as he was leaving Miami: "I hate to leave this Technicolor world for my black-and-white one."Laura Paresky's photographs are visual adventures in Deco-land
