Product story

These images represent five European cities through their surface markings. Exploring the interaction between a city and its citizens as recorded by graffiti and advertising. Sinclair's photographs occupy a place between documentary and abstraction - a scrawled word or a scrap of a fly-poster are at once physical scars on a wall and marks hovering graphically on a picture plane. In this beautifully produced book, Sinclair examines the surface of European cities. We are invited to look at graffiti and other 'unofficial' interventions anew: not as aggressive intrusions but rather as part of an ongoing collaboration project to interpret the modern city.
