    New Book On NYC Graf Scene On The Way

    Photographer Peter Sutherland will release a book chronicling New York City's graffiti writers.

    "Autograf: New York City’s Graffiti Writers" presents a never-before-seen look at the people and places of New York's legendary graffiti scene.

    The book features portraits by FUTURA, STAY HIGH 149, LADY PINK and DOZE, to name a few and each one of the portraits is authentically tagged by the individual writers using the same paint markers that brought them fame.

    Additionally, the book features over fifty landscape photographs as well as 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.

    Sutherland, a filmmaker and photographer who was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and raised in Colorado, moved to New York City in 1998 and filmed his first feature documentary, "Pedal," a film about NYC bike messengers.

    Sutherland also worked as director of photography on "Stoked: The Rise and Fall of Gator," the critically acclaimed documentary about Gator, a famous skateboarder who was convicted of murder in 1991.

    "Autograf" hits stores in May and will sell for $29.95.

    sounds like a copy might find a home on my bookshelf. i agree with captain rubbish, the revs shit sounds chill. i also like the whole "markers that brought them fame" idea [just another sucker for gimmicks].
    but to get to my point, what do you mean by "landscape photos"?

    thats just how the book looks, photos of people and then tags ontop of it, most heads covered they faces, but some didnt. the book has that kind of feel . like that pic of the guy in the jacket you all seem to be sweating so profusedly at.
