Michael Walsh_Graffito

From 1994, for 2 years Michael Walsh immersed himself in the graffiti world of the San Francisco BayArea. He took thousands of photographs, frequented train yards, went on all-night "bombing runs" with graffiti writers, prowled the Muni train tunnels at 3a.m., rode with graffiti abatement crews, spoke with small business owners who are frequent targets of graffiti, and tracked down key city officials and personnel directly involved with graffiti removal.  Michael Walsh presents a moving, articulate and visual account of an urban phenomenon begging to be understood.
