Containing 225 pages of photos taken in metropolitan cities all around the world, Phil America immersed himself into this culture and documented it over the course of ten years. In these never before seen photos, we are taken into a dangerous and private world that most are unable to ever witness: deep into subway tunnels, over fences, under surveillance cameras and behind sensors.

Graffiti on Parisian Trucks – Photographed by Good Guy Boris
#TruckGraffich is a photobook, documenting the most present and vibrant transit graffich in the capital of France. While at the time (2016-2017) when the repression of vandal squad and the effectiveness of the buff on train and metro lines let almost no graffiti to be seen in traffic, on the surface of the city, few hundred of trucks were circulating full covered in graffiti. I managed to capture (almost) all of them and to put them in this book, filled with pieces, trow-ups and tags from various french & foreign writers.

A spectacular photographic journey through the lenses of 13 graffiti artists.
13 graffiti writers, 2 years, 600 unpublished Polaroids.
Like Lipstick Traces shows the everyday life of 13 graffiti writers. Consciously, and therefore in contrast with usual graffiti publications, it uses the peculiar medium of Polaroid.
A Polaroid camera and about one hundred Polaroid photos was sent to well known graffiti writers of different nationalities. The task was to shoot their everyday life with complete freedom in the choice of the motifs. It is that freedom which makes this book so special, but also the fact that all these unpublished photos were taken especially for the book.
In the beginning of the 21st century, graffiti seems to be taking a line which is totally against its original motivation.
On one hand, this might be caused by more severe penalties, on the other it is due to the increasing incorporation of the media and big business. Thus, the artists presented in this book devote themselves to this art in a committed way. They do not succumb to commercial pressure and they bring new life into the graffiti movement.
Artists featured: Aroe (UK), C.B.S (DE), Dumbo (IT), Honet (FR), Kegr (DK), O’Clock (FR), Os Cururus (BR), Rate (USA), Remio (NOR), Rocky (ES), Scan (CA), Smash (CH), The E.R.S (BE).
