For its fourth episode entitled “Intercambio,” Here Comes the Neighborhood turns its lens to the inter-cultural aspects and underpinnings of its ongoing Wynwood Walls street art project in Miami, Florida. The community-centric project extended a broad-reaching invite to a slew of international artist from around the world, welcoming them to lend their artistic vision and creativity to the outdoor exhibition. Focusing on the work of artists from Mexico, Greece, and Ukraine the episode gives us a glimpse into artists such as Saner & Sego, b., and Interesni Kazki. Many of the artists both past and present that have emerged upon the Wynwood Walls since its creation have been crucial in spreading the multi-cultural tenants and boundary-transcendent elements of street art.
We sat down with legendary photographer David La Chapelle during his stay here in Berlin and really had some time to talk about various aspects of life and his sudden resignation of the commercial magazine world a couple of years ago. I remember meeting David the first about 4 years during an exhibition here in Berlin. The more surprised I was seeing him again and how much he has changed. His whole attitude and aura seems to be so much more calm and balanced. Just normal. No diva attitude, no superficial party mood. It was great listening to this guy, his thoughts, his story, who he was, who he became and why he is how he is.

Sometimes we win, sometimes we loose...
