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. 


     This past weekend was a great time. First I opened the I'M IN MIAMI BITCH! photographic exhibition at Frangipani(2516 NW 2nd Ave) in Wynwood, which will be up through December. Go check it out! Then I presented the book at the 30th Annual Miami Book Fair International. I was on the list of presenters with some of the world's best known authors such as Amy Tan, Dave Barry, Carl Hiaasen, Dan Brown and Civil Rights pioneer and Congressman John Lewis. 

     I was also lucky enough to do a tv spot about the project. Check it out!
