About a month after we did the Spin Dizzy shoot, <a href="http://www.alexandrarodionova.net">Alexandra Rodionova</a> and I went back to the same location to try a different style of shooting. I was using a different lens for my camera as well. But first and foremost we wanted to bring attention to the graffiti wall. This is just about the only ‘legal’ place graffiti art is allowed in the city I live in. This is also the only real area in the middle of the city were people can come and shoot hoops, play football, or just hang out. And of course this location is prime real state. So a high rise apartment building was being planned for this location. At the time there was a big local artistic movement to have the area saved. So this was our contribution.
Updated, 2006. Three years later this area is still open and free.
