The murals that I have been photographing for the past few months in the Wynwood arts district have, as I have already mentioned, been disappearing before my eyes. Imagine how shocked I felt when I bicycled by this building on NW 25th Street to see the immense and beautiful face was gone, painted over in black. I suspect there will be something new here for this fall’s Art Basel event. For the moment, however, now two days before I leave Miami, I feel a sense of loss and, maybe, a small sense of triumph that I was right to document these murals so compulsively. This fair lady, at least, is gone but not forgotten.
