I'm In Miami Bitch - The Disappearing Street Art of Wynwood

I'M IN MIAMI BITCH! The Project, An Explanation.

By Andrew Kaufman aka AK FOTO

     Photography is the most permanent longest lasting proof of street art. There is no way to preserve street art except to photograph it before it fades, is toyed with, buffed or written over. Street art, by its very nature is a fluid art form, constantly evolving because of the landscape, materials, politics, weather etc.  

      It is through photography that street art can be conveyed to the world. Images of the artists and their works are reproduced and disseminated through books, magazines and the internet.
