Carol Chung reports on Ghetto Fab: The Photo-Graf Collection
Public urban art!!… scaled down for your viewing pleasure.
Last Thursday was the opening night of the month long Ghetto Fab: Photo-Graffiti exhibition. As the title implies, it contains photographs of graffiti mural art from the boroughs of New York City. The photographer, Jonathan Singer, is hailed as “The Ansel Adams of Graffiti Photography.” There are 45 limited edition prints on display (and for purchase.) It’s nice to see that each print credits the artist who created the work. It’s a pretty nice collection of work. Some of it you may have seen before as you’ve wandered the streets of New York. While others may not seem so familiar to the Manhattanites who don’t venture much into the boroughs except for Williamsburg.
