I have been following the trail of Dublin's rich graffiti and street art since I started taking photographs in 2009. I like to show how it contrasts or interacts with people that go past it. The street art in this book includes graffiti, stencil art and shop front murals. It's my intention to make every possible effort to contact the street artists whose art is shown here. I hope this little book helps promote their work.
If a street artist out there sees this book and recognizes the author of a particular piece I didn't name, please contact me and I'd be very happy to publish an updated edition at a later stage. I've also tried to contact some of the people photographed but it has not been possible in most instances. Please let me know if you recognize yourself and have a problem with being in this book.
Artists featured and credited are: El Mac, Fink, Jef Aerosol, KARMA, Eelus, Maser, Scie, Mso, Eine, Danleo. Other artists featured but not credited in the book as I didn't have the information at the time of publishing are: Phek (page 8), Phats (pages 18/19), Rask (page 22, top photo), Cesk (page 23, bottom photo), Drie (page 24).
Profit margin is set at 0 for this book so any people whose art is shown here and want to purchase a copy can do so as cheaply as possible. I don't make any money from it.
I am a photographer from Madrid who has been living in Dublin, Ireland, for the past 20 years and this city is my greatest source of inspiration. I started taking photographs in 2009 with a digital camera, but since January 2012 I started exploring the possibilities of black and white film and I am currently learning about darkroom printing in Block T, Dublin. I am particularly interested in street photography and I am participating in the Street Photography Now Community project, which is helping me greatly in my search for my own personal style.
