Gentrification = Deathbed

New York City, July 2015

I’ve been photographing street graffiti for years. I love how much romantic love-oriented graffiti there is in NYC lately. There are buildings literally covered with the word love written in chalk all over the city.

I also love that construction sites and ruthless gentrification is equated with the “deathbed” and the loss of urban “wild life.”

Means we need these love signs, stamps, and signatures more than ever.
