    Hi I am a professional artist from Chicago. I am doing a project involving graff. photographs, which will be view at aeveral galleries accross the country... unfortunately due to my own concerns, I refuse to use photos of fellow writers that I know-with their personal info on my phone or in my studio-even though i tend to code everything, etc... of coarse, some who are retired and agree, I will be using their work, but i am paranoid because of my own past and present hobbies. Anyway to make a long story short, I am looking for graff. photos from around the world. hardcopies only please! if you are interested in helping me out and be in a wonderful series, please send photographs, with what you write, city and email clearly in either pencil or ball point pen on the back of each photograph make sure you write softly, it can not go through the other side, otherwise it's useless. also please indicate if i can use your graff. name and city in the title or on the piece-where as some will only have portions used... if your work will be used, i need to be able to get a hold of you to give you a link to one of the sites that are covering the press of my show so you can check it out. depending on the piece i may even give you a print-but that is not for sure yet we'll see. unfortunately i am unable to give out any personal info about myself until the series is completed. please send photos to my studio....

    The Workmen's Studio
    6818 N. Wayne Studio #1
    Chicago, Il. 60626

    by sending these photos you are automatically agreeing that you have given me permission to use them for my project, and possible future projects. if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them, i will try to answer them the best i can. If you are not giving me permission to freely use the photos then don't send them. thanks

    The word you are looking for is photographer, and thanks, i have hundreds and hundreds of photos since i have been writing for over 12 years now, including my own shit, but obviously due to my schedule and fact that i refuse to use my own and crew members incase there are issues with the law...etc-you never know(-that's why i only want an email address-hopefully writers are smart enough not to use their own personal info while opening an account, or sending these photographs) i would like to have a broader spectrum to work with, without a link to individuals who can somehow be found out by my phone records (its not hard to find someone if you search well enough), etc. if my studio gets busted. there are obviously going to be idiots that are going to waste their time trying to talk shit, i will be only adressing this once and only once. And yes I do photograph some of the work that I am using.. Its just dumb to think otherwise, I obviously have not gottent his far as a professional artist by depending on others to do all the work for me. And collecting these photos, are part of the process. Thanks for your comment. And for anyone else who is interesting in giving obvious advice, hope you read this.

    For some there is the concern that I am a cop, if you are interested in being a part of this project-indirectly, feel free to contact denz-if you know how to reach him. he can verify that i am not a cop. i highly doubt TAC would have a cop in their crew. Mention the post or project he will know right away who it is about. Unfortunately since my studio address is being used and I have cleaned it out incase I do get a visit fromt he cops while this series is in production, or after the gallery shows, I can not give out further info, unless I find out that I know you personally. thanks. glad i am not the only paranoid one.
