The amazing serenity, beauty and contrast that characterize his photos have become legendary and have set the standard and provide inspiration to photographers worldwide. Thanks to my job, friends and online adventures, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting great photographers and been extremely lucky to have them become unofficial virtual photography mentors.

MIAPOLIS

TheeBlog-Miapolis
It is no surprise that Miami is a beautiful, diverse city with great weather and beautiful women. But it is also no surprise that more than half of the buildings decorating our skyline are empty thanks to the real estate boom from a few years back. And just when you thought it was over, a new project/proposal is being promoted as the new face of Miami, power, and yes, the future! MIAPOLIS would not only be the newest and tallest building in Miami, but also… yes, you guessed it right, the world!

As most of you know, Art Basel Miami takes place the first week of December every year and it could easily be considered one of the most, if not the most, important art show in the US.

The exhibition, curated by Roger Gastman and Zio Fulcher, included a mini-store, free tattoo parlor and art by POSE, Anthony Lister, Shepard Fairey and David McDowell. Now, I know you might be thinking, Hello Kitty…? but hey!
