As a Philadelphia commercial and editorial photographer who also maintains a fine arts practice, I make a point to keep current on the art world. This involves going to talks and openings in Philadelphia and New York. I also regularly go to art fairs.
My girlfriend’s family lives in South Florida. For the last three years we have joined them at the various art fairs that transform Miami during the first week of December. This is called Miami Art Week, and features fairs such as Art Basel Miami Beach and Art Miami. There are over two dozen fairs throughout both Miami and Miami Beach.
Wynwood is a neighborhood in Miami. A former industrial area, in recent years it has become a hip, rapidly developing neighborhood, as well as a haven for street artists during Miami Art Week.
