Ari Marcopoulos has cemented himself as one of the most influential cultural anthropologists of the last three decades. His body of work focused on marginal pockets of American life and chronicled the early roots of these subcultures as they slowly crept into the mainstream conscience. He has an uncanny ability to be at the right place at the right time, capturing fledgling cultural movements as they are taking form. In the process, Marcopoulos produced some of the most arresting images of youth and defiance this generation ever witnessed.

New York in 1993 had a style of skating like no other. It was not your ordinary dude fest. Actually, there were no dudes allowed. These skaters were train-hopping, taxicab jumping, runaway kids – born and raised in the city. Kids from every borough and background bombed down hills, crossed bridges and ferries, to session the urban paradise. Around this time, the NYC skate scene was just beginning to take form. Very few people were able to see this culture firsthand, but Marcopoulos was there and his access was unrestricted. His exhibition, No Cause, captures the mood of the New York skate scene at the moment of inception. Through intimate portraits and quiet moments caught on Polaroid, black and white photos, color snap shots, photocopies, and drawings, Marcopoulos takes us on a ride, chronicling the personalities and locations that shaped a movement and inspired popular culture on a global scale.

Opening reception Saturday, September 11, 2010 8pm along with the release of Ari Marcopoulos' book titled Stoopz.

this weekend frankie took me to Tropical Chinese, and once again, in Miami, the best food is found in strip malls.
The dim sum breakfast is amazing as expected.

Soho House + Miami. Season tickets for your tan.

took this from tony who works at tomas maier. i guess the stores in the design district are doing something. last year i spent this night in the madness at bergdorffs....the good thing is thanks to my friend whitney and to the amount of people there trying to see the olsen twins we walked out of the store with two fuji instax cameras for free before they could tell us to give them back.

thank you carla for my red striped fishing net sweater birthday present. i wish i was still in new york so I could wake up at 7 am and be second in line at the samples sales with you, we'd probably be a better team for fighting off girls that take our bargains even though they would probably buy it at regular price anyway, but i'm glad you still think of me :)
speaking of lovely carla, pass by the brooklyn flea where she sells old working cameras with her bf Mike.

and finally since Carla is in Miami for a few days, we decided to check out Lou's Beer Garden in North Miami Beach. Really cute, delicious microbrews, 2 for 1's until 9 and the food was really really good. go there.
