Best Street Photographer Miami 2009 - Carlos Ramos (AKA Miami Fever)

With the advent of the now ubiquitous camera phone and cheap broadband, almost anyone can become a famous photographer overnight. Well, not quite anyone. There's still this little thing called talent that isn't quite universally available yet. But Carlos Ramos definitely has it. Ramos is the shutterbug known to his many fans as Miami Fever. Day after day for the last several years, he's uploaded thousands of images that seemingly capture the city's very soul — freezing the most intimate moments in a maelstrom called Miami. Not only does Ramos give the snootiest art snobs rich images to revel in, many of his photographs also cater to the more pedestrian loves of beautiful women and expensive cars, meaning there is something for everyone to like. If Ramos continues to follow his current trajectory, he has the potential to become a photographic superstar on the level of Henri Cartier-Bresson or Garry Winogrand. Yes, he's that good.

No doubt his work is great, but is anyone paying attention? Carlos moved away from Miami over a year ago ...

ummm, completely agree with comment by "HCB"

Henri Cartier-Bresson is a legendary photographer who perfected the craft and who had a vision unknown, so full of life and feeling. To know photography is not to buy a professional SLR camera, learn the settings, and shoot and upload as much as you possibly can. Photography is the science of light, you have to be an artist, a master of patience, observation, a lover of the peculiar... a master of image. to me, code name 'Miami Fever' is no where near the realms of a respected PHOTOGRAPHER...really.

you guys are off your rockers. miami fever like cartier bresson or gary winogrand? you've got to be kidding me.

only a publication with minimal respect for photography like the new times would ever say anything like that. this dude could barely be published in mediocre publications. he's obsessed with stealing shots of upskirts and expensive cars on the street with his 200mm lens and you guys call him a genius.

i hope this is a joke and that i missed the sarcasm altogether.
