Documenting Cleveland's Graffiti

One of the very first things I shot when I started taking photos was graffiti. I've always appreciated graffiti, not just it's aesthetic but also the way it simply appears over night, created by a society of faceless nocturnal beings. There are several popular walls in Cleveland, covered in perfect pieces of art, but my favorite aspect of graffiti has always been the bombing scene. Part of the fun of documenting graffiti is driving around trying to find it. We spent a good portion of the evening driving all over the city, starting on the West side and making our way East. This is just a small sample of what I shot. 

It felt good to shoot graffiti again. I had kind of gotten out of the habit of photographing all the graffiti but I plan on doing a lot more of it in the near future.

Photos taken with a Canon Mark III, with a Canon 20mm f/2.8 and Canon 135mm f/2.0 lens.
