New York Subway Graffiti in the 1980s
Bei der Time gibt es gerade eine tolle Fotostrecke des Fotografen Christopher Morris über Graffiti in New York aus den 80ern zu bewundern.
Today a TIME contract photographer and an award winning photojournalist, Morris recently re-discovered these previously unpublished shots when he read an interview with famous graffiti artist Tracy 168, who he had photographed in the 1980s. Now, looking back through his archive, Morris remembers that time as being pretty unique: “I was actually out looking for criminal elements,” he says on the phone, “trying to prove myself as a photojournalist, and prove myself to myself.”
