Two vertical shots stitched together of a “decorated” wall in the western part of Greenwich Village, New York City, close to the old meat market area.

Useless Information Department….
In last year’s movie “An Englishman in New York” starring John Hurt as Quentin Crisp, Mr. Crisp walks past this wall in the first scene in which we see him in New York. Strange as I’m sure this wall was not there (or at least not so decorated) in the early 70s when this movie was supposed to have taken place.

Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    The tags of America mostly deface. They leave tawdry behind and are like the empty calories of both art and politics. I’m guessing they’re the logical outcome of the “Esteem Movement” where every child’s been assured that s/he’s better than anyone else regardless of accomplishment. But abroad the same New York swirls guide paint that demands some change. Some reward. Something better, or at least different. Oh, they still deface in other countries, they just seem fueled by an instinct to do more than piss on a pole (or wall) so that other animals will know they’ve passed by.

    Great capture of that American mood Chris.

  • Tagging is really ugly and is unfortunately all too common but we do have some good work to be found occasionally especially around my neighborhood (Chelsea) which has become rather artsy of late with galleries opening everywhere. Not to many Banksys or Keith Harings but the odd piece of interesting graffiti here and there. Glad you appreciated my photo Ted and thanks very much indeed for this great comment.
