Study Tom’s work, whether it be the downtown area or Coconut Grove, which is his home neighborhood, and you will understand his sensitivity over the tug of war between the old and the new. His photos beg the questions: What price development? Where is historic preservation in this rush to develop? Who will patronize these behemoths when they are completed?

Can’t See It From My House by Tom Virgin.
