OK, uploading all and sifting through the materials to see what makes sense to share.
A couple of things I wanted to get right out to you though:
D.A.P. book distributors and publishers had a booth at Art Basel, (they are alreday prepping 2009!) where they took care of your artful needs if you didn’t buy any of the major pieces. Books, Books, And more Books.
PLUS one of the coolest concepts we’ve seen for a Christmas Tree (yep, I said it..not a HOLIDAY tree).
And as you can see, the use of focus give these 2 dimensional trees a very strong visual presence. ( get it? presence/presents ?)
These artist’s interpretations of the classic shape told in a 2D tree with sticky backing safe enough for any wall.
Great for those who are square footage challenged, or want the ease of rolling up the tree on Jan 2, and packing it away for another year.
And of course they are here because, well…they’re photographs.
Here are the ordering details. About $100.
Winner of Unscene Miami, 944 Magazine Photography Contest
And other than Art Basel there were a ton of events around town and one night at SET club, AXE, 944 Magazine and the UnScene Photography Tour presented UnScene Miami, a one-night-only gallery event showcasing the work of Miami’s emerging photographers.
Local artists will participated in UnScene Miami by displaying their work in two different contests, each of which provides a vehicle for exposure. Five finalists have been chosen to exhibit their images of the city they call home.

The winning photographer, announced December 4, Stephanie Stalnaker, will travel to Los Angeles in the spring to compete for a chance to have her artwork showcased in a full spread in an upcoming issue of 944 Magazine.
I was very happy to be there for the announcement to a very surprised and gracious winner.
Congratulations, Stephanie! – You shoot some beautiful work.
