With Art Basel 2015 just around the corner, Miami’s art scene is abuzz in anticipation. For this month’s Luxe Interiors + Design I was given the extraordinary task of photographing one of Miami’s preeminent art/design/architecture teams- Rosario Marquardt and Roberto Behar, of R & R Studios. Over the last few years I’ve made portraits of many of South Florida’s most talented artists and designers. However, working with this husband-and-wife team felt a little extra special. I was already quite fond of their ‘Living Room’ installation- a veritable landmark in Miami’s Design District, which was erected in 2001 and has unfortunately come down in recent years. I discovered this curious public art piece upon moving to Miami in 2003. It was my first memorable interaction with a public art installation and I always wondered just who was behind it. I didn’t actually discover Roberto and Rosario were responsible for ‘The Living Room’ until I started researching them for my Luxe shoot!
Check out my portrait of Roberto & Rosario, along with shots of their Wynwood studio space and various art pieces below.
