One of my aims in photography is to try to capture the same feeling photographing the world as the 20th century abstract expressionists did in painting. Often that takes the form of graffiti. Graffiti seems to almost be a universal language around the world. Everywhere we have traveled we see it - I think it is intended to express a certain feeling that is shared by - mostly - the less powerful and economically challenged. We have seen it all over Europe, in Asia and South America, and some of it is quite beautiful. This piece was in Vienna, on one wall of a lot where an old building had been torn down. The lot was fencd off but fences never seem to bother graffiti artists. And make no mistake, many of them are extremely talented artists with few other opportunities to express themselves. I want to expose the world to their art and give them a voice. If I could find them I would give all of my net proceeds from these pieces to them - but, of course, that isn't possible.
