Miami-Based Photographer Releases Coffee-Table Book Highlighting 40 Influential Local Women

Femke Tewari

Photographer Femke Tewari recently published Miami Women, a coffee-table book honoring the beauty and diversity of Miami. The book features 40 strong and groundbreaking women, including:

  • The first female Mayor of Miami-Dade, Daniella Levine Cava
  • Breast cancer survivor Angeles Almuna, who organizes Miami’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • Crystal Wagar, the first Black mayor of Miami Shores and only third Black mayor in the state of Florida
  • Karen Monteagudo, who founded Miami’s Water Women Collective – a diverse community of female surfers and divers.

 

“Early in the pandemic, I was in shock about the intense discussion about race in America,” Tewari says. “As part of a true rainbow family, I needed to use the power of photography to show the beauty of diversity. The book, full of compelling images and inspiring stories about women who love and serve Miami, also became an artwork about female empowerment.”

A portion of the proceeds from this book will go to the Women’s Fund of Miami-Dade, an organization working to create positive change for women and girls. Visit www.femketewari.com for more information.
