ready the photography world is abuzz and the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables has approved an exclusive installation of Matt’s “Aban- doned Vehicles of the Everglades” work during Art Basel 2017. is is shaping up to be a ‘not-to-be-missed’ event. Accordingly, we have tons of work to do. Each of Matt’s pho- tographs takes 10 to 14 hours to process. We got a lead the other day. Our source said that the vehicle looks a lot like the “Mys- tery Machine,” Scooby Doo’s van from the cartoon series. It appears that this particular haunting didn’t turn out so well for “those meddling kids”. I said to Matt, “We better pack our equipment and get out there before it gets dark,” and so another vehicular ad- venture is underway!
