Year in Review January 2015

As a nod to the lessons and amazing experiences of this great year, I will dedicate 12 blog posts, one for each month. Enjoy and thanks for the love and support during this wild ride. 

2015 jumped off with a real bang - January

Deon Rubi and I were knee deep in the renovation and decor of MADE at the Citadel, as well as sharing a studio. I just completed the incredible production of #IHAITIBASEL and were sprung immediately back into thrift shops, CraigsList and design layouts. I hosted Ricardo Mor's celebration honoring his new position as Opinion Editor for the Miami Herald at Maggie Knox's first official show, BE, at my studio and Maggie Knox HQ in Little Haiti. 

I had many new friendships that were just beginning to blossom from the excitement of 2014, like Ajhanou Uneek of Rara Rock and Kriz Rara bands performing in Little Haiti.

As a contributing photographer for Tropicult, I began the year shooting Of Montreal. They put on quite a show, with visuals to remember and so many costumes! As we end the year without Grand Central, shooting this show was really a testament to the magic it brought as a venue. Lights magnifying off the audience, shimmying between speakers to get a shot, I will definitely miss that place.

 

I got the pleasure of photographing Amanda Season Keeley, the founder of EXILE Books, at their pop up at BasFischer International at the Downtown Art House. A fan of her work from day one, it was so nice to have her behind my lens for a few minutes. More images from this pop-up HERE.
