 ABSENCE OF PLACE
by  Xavier Cortada

 

COLLABORATE
with the artist and The Miami Herald.



WE WANT YOUR MEMORIES, AND YOUR RECENT PHOTOGRAPHS

Be a part of this project, and help our community preserve memories of what used to be in South Florida. Here's how you can participate.

E-mail your photos to:

absenceofplace.cortada@buzznet.com

or mail them to:

Absence of Place
The Miami Herald
c/o 5th floor newsroom
1 Herald Plaza
Miami, FL  33132

Be sure to include:

  • Your name, city and state, and phone number and email.
    Tell us if you prefer that your name not be used.

  • Describe the place where the photo was taken (as specific as possible) and when.

  • Describe your memory of the place that is now absent.
     

Even if you cannot send a photo, you can add your own memories to photos by Xavier Cortada or those submitted by other readers. Just go to http://www.MiamiHerald.com  and click on Today's Extras.

No camera at all? Write to us anyway, and we'll try to get someone out to take a photo of the place you describe.


We'll post the photos online as we receive them. This summer, Xavier Cortada and The Miami Herald will sponsor an exhibition of the photos at The Miami Herald.

Questions? Leave a message for us at 305-376-3466, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

By sending your photo and message to participate in the project, you agree to release all rights to Xavier Cortada, The Miami Herald and/or MiamiHerald.com, thereby allowing the Miami Herald and the artist to use the photo, message and information as they deem appropriate and without limitation
.

We are sorry, but we cannot return photos.
