Farewell My Lovely

Farewell My Lovely

Photo copyright 2013 by Susan Reinberg

As I prepare to leave Miami in two weeks, I reflect on how much has changed since I arrived last fall. The face of Wynwood, well-known for its lively arts scene and its signature murals, has changed literally in front of my eyes. I have taken hundreds of photographs as a document of the street art here. Many of the walls that I photographed have been altered or painted over in just these few months. Buildings have come down, pulverized, their murals along with them. This “Blue Angel,” on North Miami Avenue, started showing signs of impending demise right after I began photographing it; someone was pulling away at the surface. A For-Lease sign on the building now depicts a planned renovation. The new and improved facade on the architect’s illustration is bare.

About Susan Reinberg

My digital diaries and altered states photographs are my way of sharing my personal vision. These images reflect my daily life and surroundings. I would like to range farther in my photographic journeys. But in the meantime, as any photographer knows, the images are at my doorstep.

  1. Miami’s loss is our gain! It will be interesting what you find to photograph in such different circumstances. I’m sure we’ll be surprised.
