ABMB: Book Review – I'm In Miami Bitch – Art Basel 2012
As Art Basel 2013 winds down we look back at some of the shenanigans from last year. Photojournalist, Andrew Kaufman, shares a first-hand perspective of some of our personal favorite artists painting in paradise. The book, I’m In Miami Bitch, is 216 pages with a foreword by Kenny Scharf and exclusive interview with Books Bischof. Andrew shares a brief explanation of his project below:
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.
