Scratching

Photographing street art is to appropriate other people’s work. I aim for capturing artworks that carry witty aphorisms or provocative images in public. Most of these reproductions are graffiti originally captured in the city of Rome. This city is filled with scribblings, stamps, and tagging with a lot of discursive potentials. Walking through numerous urban landscapes over time, it is possible to archive and amplify the ephemerality of urban art, while respecting its intrinsic hierarchy that puts chaos and anarchy first.
