“Before I die” graffiti/social art project in Philadelphia, PA. This project allows passer-bys to add to the work with chalk, contributing a hope, dream, or aspiration they hope to accomplish before they leave the Earth. This photo was taken in September 2012.
Part of my graffiti collection.
I have a strange hobby of taking photographs of graffiti and collecting them. Graffiti, like most art forms, are not permanent. So in a way, I feel like I am preserving an art before it disappears. In this collection, I hope to honor all types of graffiti that I have come across. The good, bad, and ugly.
