Graffiti lite

Ransom Riggs

Most of us cyber geeks love a good shot of graffiti art, be the murals absurd and fun or masterworks by Banksy, but the reality is that most of this stuff is ephemeral at best, gets covered over by paint crews pretty quickly (at great cost to Joe Taxpayer) so they live on primarily through photographs. If that's the case, why not create graffiti art that only exists in photographs?

That's just what a new generation of "light graffiti" artists are doing. Armed with only flashlights, glowsticks or torches and cameras capable of taking 10-30 second long-exposures, they're lighting up the night and changing the face of tagging. Check it out!
