    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

    powerHouse Books is thrilled to announce the release of


    Autograf
    New York City’s Graffiti Writers


    Photographs by Peter Sutherland
    Text by REVS



    A controversial art form and provocative cultural phenomenon, graffiti has
    inestimably influenced our entire environment—from music and fashion to
    advertising, architecture, and graphic arts. Yet it is an illegal activity, which
    makes its practitioners wanted criminals. Motivated by a desire for
    self-expression and recognition, the act of marking one’s territory is done at the risk of
    severe consequences including fines and jail time. Graffiti writers are
    outlaws, unknown artists whose faces are known only to their peers. Treated as
    criminals by the law and dismissed as artists by the establishment, writers are
    perceived as either alluring anti-heroes or loathsome vandals, and usually remain
    anonymous to their audience. But not to photographer Peter Sutherland.


    With an eye for style, Sutherland captures all of the gritty glory and
    glamour of the graffiti world and its warriors. Collected for the first time in
    Autograf: New York City’s Graffiti Writers, Sutherland presents a
    never-before-seen chronicle of the people and places that populate New York’s famed graff
    scene. Featuring old-school legends FUTURA, STAY HIGH 149, LADY PINK and DOZE—as
    well as REVS, COPE 2, KAWS, CYCLE, CLAW, VFRESH, KR, EARSNOT, SERF, MINT, RATE,
    SACER, UFO, MERZ, NATO, DSENSE, 323, KORN, EWOK, JEST, OZE 108, DONA, MYNOCK
    21, SEMZ, KSER, SEMEN, DIVA, PEEK, GLACER, NYMZ, JAKEE, ARTZ, MUK, LASE,
    MOSCO, GEN 2, PEZ, SARE, CINIK, SINCE, ZER, NET, MADE, SAME, REHAB, GOAL, YEAR,
    FANTA, KECH, AREA, and DECK—each one of the portraits is authentically tagged by
    the individual  writers using the same paint markers that brought them fame.
    Complemented by over fifty landscape photographs and featuring handwritten text
    by legendary recluse REVS, Autograf  is the only book to showcase New York
    City’s graffiti scene as it was created and defined by some of the most prolific
    artists of our time.

    Peter Sutherland is a filmmaker and photographer who was born in Ann Arbor,
    Michigan in 1976 and raised in Colorado. A move to NYC in 1998 prompted his
    first feature documentary, Pedal, a film about NYC bike messengers that is
    currently airing on the Sundance Channel. Sutherland also worked as director of
    photography on Stoked: The Rise and Fall of Gator, a documentary about Gator, a
    famous skateboarder who was convicted of murder in 1991. Directed by Helen
    Stickler, Stoked premiered at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival, and was released
    theatrically by Palm Pictures in August 2003. Sutherland is a contributing
    photographer to magazines including Vice, Tokion, Nylon, Paper, and XLR8R, and has
    done commercial photographic work for Nike and Vice Records. He has shown his
    work at the Rivington Arms gallery and at 255 Elizabeth Space, both in New
    York. Sutherland lives and works in New York City.

    It's a dope book, but if you want some graffiti you'll be disappointed. It is interesting to see how the writers how chosen to have thieir portraits taken and the photos themselves are beautiful. Think of it more as a photography book than a graf book.
