Right to Wynwood

Our project, “Right to Wynwood” explores the causes and effects of gentrification in Wynwood. Through interviews with developers, gallerists, artists, community leaders, and members of the local Puerto Rican population, we seek to tell the story of how Wynwood went from Miami’s oldest Puerto Rican community to its largest art district, and what that means for the future of the neighborhood. We want people to be aware of the peculiar way in which the neighborhood was gentrified—one of them being the use of street art as a marketing tool. It’s a story about Miami in every way possible, from art to culture to economy to community. Our film is a documentation of a unique part of Miami’s history that just so happens to be in process right now. Though people have been calling Wynwood the ‘Soho of Miami’, we’ve discovered that this simply isn’t true, as gentrification in Wynwood occurred in a completely different way, with entirely different motives.

We’ve also discovered that no one actually knows what really happened, have never heard the word gentrification in their lives, and for the most part are blissfully unaware of what has been going on in their own streets. Many people are exploring Wynwood, but no one is asking any of the questions that we are.

Get Liive Football Camp

As summer comes to an end and Football season quickly approaches, I wanted to share my first football related video post. Earlier this summer, I worked alongside Malka Media as the Director of Photography for this promo video for the Get Liive Football Camp. Tennessee Titan’s LB, Collin McCarthy and S.A.S. Sports Training  sponsored this event in which NFL players such as, Philadelphia Eagle’s WR, Riley Cooper and Atlanta Falcon’s K Matt Bosher train and  interact with children whom are passionate about football.  Press play and enjoy!


Last Shoot for “Right to Wynwood”

Both a little sad and proud today after our last shoot for “Right to Wynwood“, the documentary @camialvarez7 and I have been working on / putting our souls into. It’s felt somewhat like an eternity and yet a quick glimpse at the same time. We’re at the final stages of this project that has led us to understand the complexities and the real story behind Wynwood. Can’t wait to share it with you all !

Markets Around the World: Quito, Ecuador

Whenever I travel to far away lands, a main priority on my agenda is to stop at the local markets. Within each city of every country there are unique characteristics. These details are vivid as you walk through the stalls where vendors and locals gather and share their cherished and most used items: tropical fruits or coconut broom sticks, Mediterranean spices and lanterns, or wine, cheese, and paintings… My photo series of “Markets Around the World” are representations of the uniqueness of individual cultures and the basic need for human interaction, exchange and communion.

Living in corporate America where we stroll through mega supermarket chains, grocery carts in tow in search of the next best processed product of artificially preserved “goods” sealed in boxes or cans, has made me appreciate these places in which the natural, pure, hand crafted are still regarded with value and esteem. For me, shopping in supermarkets feels more like a chore compared to shopping in small markets where you can experience real human synergy instead of the mandatory “Here’s your receipt, Thank you.”

Here are some photos taken with my Iphone in Quito, Ecuador!

Guyana, South America

This May, Jonathan Machado and I had the pleasure of working in Guyana, South America.  Neither one of us had ever been to this unique country located just north of Brazil and east of Venezuela. The most interesting part of this experience was immersing myself within the heterogeneous, mixed demographics. The ethnic groups are Indian, African, European, Chinese, and the Indigenous. The two largest are the Indo-Guyanese (from India) and Afro-Guyanese (from Africa).  So, you get to see beautiful Indian architecture and dance to Caribbean rhythms all in one place. We got to eat Creole and Curry dishes, share laughs with our new friends Ryan and Jermaine, and of course document the entire trip.  You can visit Jonathan’s photoblog to view his lovely stills from our travels.  The video we worked on will be up soon as well. Enjoy!

Kendrick Lamar // Live at The Fillmore Miami

Kendrick Lamar’s star is burning brighter than it has at any point during the 25-year-old rapper’s career. Lamar’s performance was, for lack of a better word, epic. “K-Dot, K-dot, K-dot!!!” the crowd shouted in anticipation before he took the stage. The room exploded when Kendrick came out, the energy overwhelming as fans got their first glimpse of the rapper. K-Dot gave his fans exactly what they wanted, a slew of old school hits from earlier projects with a mix of freestyles and newer songs and, toward the end, a preview of the new album with hits like “The Recipe” and “Swimming Pools (Drank)”. In the process, he showed us all why he’s the total package as an emcee. (Written By: Jayson Stewart @FiveStarAdam)

Walk2Nicaragua – The 1,080 Mile Journey

Photos by Natalie Edgar. March 2, 2012.  Miami, FL. On Friday, Imagination Federation, a non-profit organization that works towards the education of children in Chacraseca, Nicaragua hosted their second annual Walk2Nicaragua walkathon. The aim was to collectively walk 1080 miles—the distance between Miami and Chacraseca.  While the main location for the event was at the Miami Dade College Kendall, others took the initiative to gather and walk for the cause as well. 25 students from Mast Academy walked the Rickenbacker causeway, 100 citizens of Chacraseca, Nicaragua completed a total of 755 kilometers (469 miles) around the small community, and 12 fellows of the NHLI 2012 Executive Leadership Program held in California gathered in San Juan Bautista and walked 16 miles.  Over 400 Participants at Miami Dade College finished 1,080 miles 12 hours after the start of the event. Although the distance goal was not only reached, but also exceeded, their second goal is still in progress. With about a month left of the campaign, Imagination Federation has raised 4,500 dollars out of their 10,000-dollar goal.  For more information, or if you would like to support this cause, visit www.fundly.com/walk2nicaragua
