I like how Street Art is as rough as it is fragile. Photographing it is also about seizing the moment, Street Art being intrinsically ephemeral. My intention is to recreate a scene by simply framing the art to enable it to perpetuate in time. Some might argue that I “steal” from the artists but as Banksy quoted and supposedly ‘stole’ from Picasso: ‘the bad artists imitate, the great artists steal’!
