Welcome to You Should Check Out..., a weekly blog in which Chris Black of Words For Young Men and Done to Death Projects tells you about something or someone he really likes and that he thinks you'll like too. Follow him on Twitter at @donetodeath.

Hassan Rahim is an artist and art director living and working in Los Angeles. His work, reminiscent of adolescent fantasies, uses photography, collage and mixed media to create strong contextual pieces. I asked Hassan to capture his experience at Art Basel Miami Beach 2012. He produced a wonderful collection of striking photographs that give us a different view of the otherwise sun-soaked, party-filled weekend.
