Illustrated City Part 10
Location, location, location!
For this urban photography project, I’m not just looking for street art and hardcore graffiti that I think is executed well, I’m looking to find them in places of real character and ambiance. Places that seem to help the street art to have impact either when you see them in person of through photography. Of course, I continue to wonder if the location of street art especially that, which is unsolicited, are always strategic moves to the people putting them there or just of convenience.
For this series, I’m finding pieces that I think are quite strong aesthetically, socially or politically because of their placement but not many. I’m still searching.
I have come across places in cities; even the one I live in, where I actually wish someone would put up a sophisticated mural or an elaborate tag just as I have come across places that I think should have been left alone (one blogger [Cardinal Guzman] aptly likens the latter circumstance to dogs marking territory).
