Yes, I am doing another book. That is the conclusion I finally came to after publishing I'M IN MIAMI BITCH! The Disappearing Street Art of Wynwood. I was so immersed in the street art scene of Wynwood during the 2013 season with the launch of IIMB! that I created another project. This one I am calling BASELGEDDON: A Novela. Why you ask? Well, it's simple. Just when I thought Wynwood couldn't get any crazier, busier, more graffiti and mural strewn, it just goes and ups itself one more notch on the totem pole.
BASELGEDDON is a different kind of beast this time around. It's more focused, refined, thought provoking and in-depth in the reporting of what is going on in Wynwood. Why? Well, for one I learned just enough to be dangerous. Well, not dangerous in a bad way, dangerous in that I actually can begin to understand what I am looking at. Who's who and what's what. There is no guide book, no road map, it's just hard work and as they say boots on the ground. I was on the scene morning, noon and night.
These last weeks I have been deep in the AK Foto laboratory, completing the design, production and printing of the book. Now comes the fun part, the fruit of my labor. The book is finished and I get to share it with the community.
So here is a little low down on this years project...
