LIKE LIPSTICK TRACES: DAILY LIFE POLAROIDS FROM THIRTEEN GRAFFITI WRITERS
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. The idea was to send a Polaroid camera and about one hundred Polaroid photos to graffiti writers of different nationalities, with the task to shoot their everyday life, and to give them complete freedom in the choice of the motifs. It surely is this kind of freedom which makes this book so special, but also the fact that all these unpublished photos were taken especially for the book.

Artists involved in the book : 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)
