A pioneer of photography on the scene of contemporary train graffiti, Alex Fakso is probably the most famous name in this field. His work has managed to inspire both photographers and graffiti writers alike, being the main reasons why documentary photography of illegal graffiti can be considered a discipline in itself today. Of course, the limited edition can dedicated to his role in the culture is adorned with an explosive snapshot, selected from the Italian photographer’s own archive.
Alex Fakso started as a graffiti and skateboard photographer in the early ‘90s in Italy. His intrinsic aim is to produce compelling and dramatic images where the silent protagonists are graffiti writers juxtaposed to train depots and underground tunnels sceneries. His books “Heavy Metal” and “Fast or die” dive deep into these alien landscapes capturing with raw authenticity the vivid atmospheres of a parallel world that breaths through the darkest bends of our cities. In recent years his work began destroying the aesthetics and meaning of images thank to the use of waste objects focusing on transforming photographs into rare and unthinkable artworks.
