Miami Stories

HistoryMiami Museum will capture the spirit of the magic city during Art Basel Week while hosting one of the most popular art events in recent years: the Miami Street Photography Festival. The festival and exhibitions are part of HistoryMiami’s newly-established Center for Photography, created as a part of a Knight Arts Challenge grant, and will feature world-class photographers, exhibitions, lectures, workshops, photo walks, and portfolio reviews. Legendary photographers Richard Kalvar, Alex Webb, Rebbeca Norris-Webb, Maggie Steber, Jill Freedman, and Matt Stuart will be this year’s featured guests.

Now in its fifth year, the Miami Street Photography Festival will take over a gallery at HistoryMiami Museum and feature the work of photographers from more than 60 countries.  The festival’s mission is to give exposure to up-and-coming photographers from around the globe and highlight the best in international street photography.
