Valerio Polici

Photography and graffiti have always gone hand in hand, never more than in these times of rapid buffing and instant internet fame. Point, shoot, upload and wait for the approval of your “peers”, preserving your piece forever. As we all know there are a handful of truly skilled photographers emerging from within the graffiti scene, but what has been lacking to date are “outsider” photographers looking at graffiti and producing images that go beyond the traditional snapshot. An interesting exception to the rule is Valerio Polici, whose work is featured in this months British Journal of Photography. His images explore the greater narrative of graffiti on trains, capturing moments either side of the action. Great stuff but not very widespread on the webs yet, I would recommend you grab a copy of this months BJP.
