After taking December off to recoup from Art Basel, galleries in Wynwood and Design District opened their doors to one and all Saturday night for Art Walk. It was a brisk 60 degrees, so, naturally, several died-in-the-wool Miamians dressed like members of the Inuit tribe. Here is a selection of the photos I took along N.W. Second Avenue throughout the night.
My favorite subject to photograph, by far, is the human face. As the primary photographer for Beached Miami, I’m constantly aiming my camera at the interesting faces I encounter around the city. The following photos are all from 2011 and, unless otherwise noted, I snapped them. To keep up with my photographic exploits for years to come, you can follow me on Twitter, where I’m given to instamgramming and immaturity in equal measure.
With the Sketchy Holiday Party at Lester’s on Thursday night, we asked several Sketchy Miami artists to deck the virtual halls with holiday-inspired portraits. Here are five from the series, which you can see in its entirety on sketchymiami.com. To learn more about the party — an unsilent night of live art, music, drinks, food, and possibly a gift if you get a lucky raffle ticket — visit the Facebook event page.

I photographed this little rascal at the Sketchy Miami pop-up at Big Night in Little Haiti on Nov. 18. To see more Pix, visit beachedmiami.com/pix. You can also follow my incessant instagramming on the Twitter.
With YACHT at Electric Pickle, Neon Indian at Bardot, and Special Disco Version (the DJ project of LCD Soundsystem members James Murphy and Pat Mahoney) and Black Lips at Grand Central, Thursday night presented the music fiend with a dilemma. (See the Art Basel Music Guide — tonight is barely easier.) After letting a dart toss decide it, we ended up at Grand Central, where there was a wrap-around line of people who were probably hoping Nancy Whang would show up and SDV would transform into almost LCD. (Whang is in town for a DJ set at Bardot Saturday night. Again, see the Art Basel Music Guide.) That didn’t happen, but it was still a fun show. Here are our favorite 10 photos from the night. To see many more, head over to the Beached Miami Facebook page.
The official start of Art Basel Miami Beach and its attendant madness is just two days away. So far, we’ve put out the Art Basel Top Ten List and the Art Basel Music Guide, featuring the Beached Basel Bash at Electric Pickle Wednesday night (wink), to help you plan your itinerary. But none of those addresses the all-important ABMB question: What to wear? For those of you looking for fashion guidance, roll video.
Instead of photographing Critical Mass on Friday night (as we do almost every month), we decided to shoot video of the mass gearing up for the monthly bike ride at Government Center, its usual downtown starting point. The song in the video is “This Is The Timing” by ANR, which is headlining the Beached Basel Bash on Wednesday alongside Millionyoung, PLAINS, Little Beard, and other fine Miami talent. To learn more about the BBB, visit the FB event page. But first, roll tape.
These are my favorites photos from a month of occupation, zombies, and rain. They are arranged in chronological order and, unless noted otherwise, they were taken by yours truly. Each photo links back to its original post (if it appeared previously on this site).
All photos are by Robby Campbell (@photogrobby). You can click on any photo to see its original post, unless, of course, this is its original post.
I attended the second game of the Marlins’ inaugural season. We played the Dodgers and lost, 2 to 4, behind pitcher Jack Armstrong. Despite getting off to a bad start, I kept going to Marlins games and, in the last 18 years, I have sat in the stands at the stadium now called Sun Life (that I never stopped calling Joe Robbie) hundreds of times. Only for Marlins games — you wouldn’t catch me dead among the hollering horde at a Dolphins game. In fact, I’m not much of a sports fan. But I am a Marlins fan, and I always will be. I’ll attend many a game at the new Miami Ballpark, but I’ll probably never go back to Sun Life. For this reason, I decided to attend yesterday’s game, the last ever at the stadium where I watched us win the ’97 Series. It was the last of a three-game home stand against the Nationals. We won.
