America’s southernmost state is a place of great diversity and energy. The United States’ fourth largest economy and home to more than 20 million people, Florida also hosts more than 100 million visitors every year, most of whom arrive to enjoy the beaches, warm weather and entertainment of ‘The Sunshine State’. Images of tanning tourists, retired seniors and Mickey Mouse give an incomplete picture of Florida. The state is also home to the Everglades, a vast area of sub-tropical wetlands and swamps filled with alligators and flamingos; Miami’s Cuban culture and cuisine; the international race course at Daytona Beach; the Kennedy Space Center, which has been launching NASA space shuttles since 1964; and the famous Florida Keys, a coral archipelago stretching out into the Gulf of Mexico. Presented in a handy, pocket-sized landscape format and with captions explaining the story behind each photo, Florida is a stunning collection of images bringing to life the vitality of this sunny American state.
