Light Graffiti

I have seen this in various forms - laser shows on the sides of buildings, for example. But I have not heard of light being used in a three dimensional type of way from a graffiti artist. I am not especially happy that this is linked to an advertising campaign but am sufficiently impressed that it looks so neat. It is your call, folks: Photographer Michael Bosanko swapped spray cans for flashlights to graffiti British landmarks in a new set of images commissioned by TalkTalk to mark the launch of an advertising campaign that uses the same technique

Kevin Bauman

Street art by any name has to include houses and structures. So when I saw an article on Kevin Bauman's 100 Abandoned Houses series, I thought - "Yes - this is street art!" Photographer Kevin Bauman embarked on an ambitious project. He began photographing Detroit's abandoned and deteriorating houses back in the late 1990s. His intention was to create a record of a Detroit past - a time of splendid homes and great architecture. He wanted to preserve these images before all was torn down. Many of these hosues are still standing, thanks to a recession that stopped redevelopment in that city. All 100AbandonedHouses are on his website KevinBauman.
