What’s the difference between “street art” and “graffiti”?
I often enjoy the added element of a little graffiti to a photograph. Especially if the photographer brings their own point of view, or captures a moment within the frame. It blends one artist’s work with another, and when combined, often makes an interesting statement.
It’s that random collaboration between artists that adds a fun dimension.
I dug deep into the PhotoShelter community to come up with these cool examples of photography — each containing graffiti/street art as an element.
