A Curated Mini Fridge Fair

Fridge is an art fair with a heart and passion. It’s been called everything from raw to a boutique fair. According to founder Eric Ginsburg, "This year we’re proud to present artists whose work is authentic and personal, with messages for everyone." As in past fairs, the question posed to artists who participate is always “Can you fit it into the Fridge?” The fair has an amended title of “A Curated Mini Fridge,” indicating the (even) smaller space used to exhibit and celebrate.

Miami Street Photography Festival

​​The MSPF© is an international photography festival that showcases the best of contemporary street photography viewed through the eyes of emerging photographers in this genre. The goal of the Festival is to establish a global platform for learning through exhibitions, workshops, lectures and other events. ​This Festival is a collaborative effort to advance the work of photographers who pay attention to everyday life in order to capture the world around us.​ Street photographers use their keen sense of observation to capture compelling candid moments in the everyday life of strangers, whether it be a gesture, facial expression, action or scene. Their method is often likened to a mirror held up to society, reflecting reality. There is no set-up involved, no manipulation of the scene and very little or no post-processing of the image. At the heart of street photography is the "decisive moment." This is the split second when an image becomes complete in its composition - when each element of the image is in balance, in context and essential to the scene. This is when the shutter is released and the moment is captured forever.
