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. 

I'M IN MIAMI BITCH! The first color proofs

     Color proofing, those two words strike fear into the most experienced and professional industry veterans. Are you calibrated? Are you profiled? What color space are you using? Printing digitally is a snap. Just click and print. I'M IN MIAMI BITCH! the book will be printed in an offset manner and that means CMYK(Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black). The paper of choice will be a 140 GSM woodfree matte art paper that translates into a 95lb paper. It has a great surface for picking up detail and texture. It will keep with the theme of the project and the overall design.
