Light Brushing Graffiti by Florian Krause

If you know us a little bit, you also know that we fell in love with light painting since we saw the amazing photography of  light painting pioneer Dana Maltby aka TCB. Since then we've added a light painting section to the site (cracklightdistrict) and we've done a lot with light painting, including our very own workshop event. We've also seen the combination of light painting and graffiti before, but it's rarely as awesome as this!...

Out of sight – Jeremy Gibbs

Quality documentation is nothing new in the world of graffiti and street art. From the early days there were people intrigued by subway graffiti and other stuff out and about they saw as an art form.

Baloji ft. Konono Nº1 – Karibu Ya Bintou

Yesterday, Arden and myself were thinking about our 'music department' - Crackforyourears.  Before revamping the website, it had been offline for over an year.

It's an undeniable fact that we're lovers of analog photography. I don't want to get all high and mighty about it, but there's something about the grain, the imperfections and unforgivefullness of film that intrigues us.

BNE Water

It was around 2005/2006 we started to notice the BNE stickers all around town. As soon as we started noticing we saw them everywhere we came, in every city we went. Where did they came from, why are they placed everywhere and most of all,  who put them there? Back then a google search didn't return a neat wikipedia page or any other answer. Just others with the same questions (like the mayor of San Francisco). Over the years we...

Fabio Carneiro

Plus points for my buddy from Share Likes! She introduced me to the stunning works of Portuguese graffiti / street artist Fábio Carneiro. In the current climate we just know the EU is going down because of a country like Portugal, but as long as they bring forth cool artists like Fabio we could not care less. Who would like to work anyway if you can paint in the sun! When you flick through Fabio his portraits it is obvious he has...

Cristina Poetto (Lapoetto)

The Argentinian model and photographer Cristina Poetto has stunned us in both her professions! Being drop-dead gorgeous, Lapoetto already completes every shot, but also her participation in the creative process of the photographer always makes for a beautiful end result. She has posed for brilliant photographers like German Saez, Alejandro Cerutti, Fabio Berquez and many others. I suggest you take a look at her model portfolio and be...
