The streets of Cleveland during the RNC

Photographs that I took on the streets of Cleveland during the RNC.

The most populous metro area in the world.

An endless array of public transit.

Tradition and modernity.

Wynwood Street Art (Miami, FL)

The Wynwood neighborhood, located just north of downtown Miami, is a transformed urban warehouse district. It started with street graffiti and has blossomed into a collection of galleries, eateries, and breweries. The raw feel of street art is still the main draw. Murals seem to go on forever.

Washington D.C. Metro

With six lines and 91 stations, the D.C. transit system is the second busiest in the U.S. Many D.C. metro stations utilize “Brutalist” architecture, which became popular in the 60’s and 70’s. The style originates from French term Béton brut, which translates to “raw concrete.”

St. Petersburg Street Art

These are images from Florida’s expanding street art scene. St. Pete has an array of new art in countless alleys and in the warehouse district. Several of these images were recently painted during the “Shine”St. Petersburg Mural Festival. 

Buenos Aires

“The City of Books” has one bookstore for every 4,000 residents. Theaters, museums, and opera halls dot this cultural metropolis, creating a vibrancy comparable to any major urban area in the northern hemisphere.

Buenos Aires Street Art

The streets of Buenos Aires contain a world class art gallery. Porteños, as well as local government officials, are customarily in favor of large murals.  With an abundant supply of high rises and industrial areas, it is not difficult for an artist to find a canvas. Building owners even contact prominent street artists in order to add some color to their walls. Historically, graffiti spiked around the 1983 transition to democracy, and then again, during the 2001 financial crises.
