Faces of Graffiti  by Caroline Jensen

Hardcover. 8 x 0.33 x 12 in. 80 Pages. Dokument Press, ISBN: 978-91-88369-66-6

Published: November 25, 2021
This book features intimate portraits of writers whom photographer Caroline Jensen has established a deep and personal connection with. The book portrays New York graffiti pioneers who began writing in the late 1960s, writers who grabbed the baton and established graffiti in Stockholm in the 1980s, and younger writers who have further developed the graphic design of graffiti. Charmin 65, Nic 707, Riff 170, Rubin, Snake 1, Kaos, Shiro, and Taki 183 are some of the artists portrayed in the book, accompanied by images of their graffiti art. Rooted in her work as a psychotherapist, she reflects on self-development and the role graffiti plays in the lives of the writers.

Available in wide release at most online booksellers, including Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
