My Dog Sees: A Street Art Photo Diary
January 20, 2018
Each week, my deaf dog Edison and I hit the streets of South Florida in search of street art and graffiti. Not only does street art educate and inspire me creatively, these weekly urban hikes are good exercise for both of us and are a great opportunity for Edison and me to bond.
At home, there are three other dogs (and 6 cats) that clamor for my attention. Each weekend, however, it is just Edison and me for a few hours- sniffing, exploring and flicking photos. My Dog Sees: A Street Art Photo Diary highlights select photographs of the art we discover- together, a dog, his boy and a camera!
If you can’t wait for this weekly recap, I encourage you to follow along on Instagram.

Leading up to Art Basel Miami, a huge international art festival during which art takes over the city, the Wynwood Mural Artist Collective (WYMAC) curated a huge space of outdoor walls next to the train tracks on the eastern border of Wynwood. The goal was to provide local or regional artists with walls to paint leading up to and during Art Basel Miami, a time in which local artists are increasingly pushed out to make space for the big-name international street artists and their crews who are brought in from all over the globe to splash the neighborhood with massive new walls.
The trackside walls exceed 22,000 sq. foot. On Saturday, I only had time to shoot a few of the walls, so look for more of these new walls in the coming days and weeks.
Claudio Picasso AKA @cpwon dropped this gem on a trackside pole.

Something unexpected on a pole on the main drag in Wynwood. Artist unknown.
