Thought-Provokers: Miami Beach

Miami has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Miami Beach that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

As I write this today, I sit in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I came here with a one-way ticket that I booked one week prior to departure date, with no idea of what exactly I was searching for, in fact, I had no intention of searching for anything. I longed to see what life would place in front of me if I let it happen the way it was supposed to. It’s a beautiful thing to let go, and let life be. I have captured shots that not only tell stories but let one feel them. Read more>>

But the entire time I had this hidden but not so hidden ability to put clothes together in order to tell a story.
