For the better part of the last decade, Rahsaan Alexander—professionally known as DJ FLY GUY—had been a fixture behind the turntables at the most prominent nightclubs in Miami’s nightlife scene. But all of that—and indeed, the entire world—came to a screeching halt in March of 2020 with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Faced with a global health crisis, the shutdown of his industry, and brewing social unrest, Rahsaan turned his creative energies to a passion he once explored as a high school senior at Miami Killian—namely, photography.
In a moment of solitude and deep inflection, Rahsaan decided that would ultimately change the course of the remainder of his year. He charged himself with the task of reigniting the zest and enthusiasm he once had for an old love of his photography.
This pivotal moment quickly went from taking photos for leisure to intentionally capturing moments in time within the city he calls home, Miami. To further his new passion project, Rahsaan has now decided to debut his photojournalist artwork at an exhibition event in December 2020. To learn more, visit www.tomiamiwithlove.com or Instagram.
