25 Pounds of Graffiti Photo History
Carl Weston of Video Graf fame
is offering up his photo collection on e-bay.
This is like a graffiti estate sale,
nothing short of epic.
“In 1988 I started a
video magazine series called Video Graf,
the video came out a few times
a year until about 1995.
I went on to produce a few more
graffiti videos series like
Graf Core and Over Spray.
Graffiti writers gave video Graf productions
pictures for over 20 years.
I’m now putting the whole collection
up for auction on e-bay.
This collection of photographs represents
the 80’s and the 90’s
with a few shots from the 70’s.
I don’t know how many photos are
in the collection but is
weights approximately 25 pounds.
Approximately 60 percent of the
collection is walls mostly
from the 80’s & 90’s.
Approximately 40 percent of the
photos in the collection are trains,
including freights mostly but not
all from new york city.
Approximately 30 percent of the train photos
are New York subway shots representing
the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.
The wall and freight photos come from
every corner of the USA and the world
and mostly represent the 90’s.
This photo collection is ideal
for someone wanting to start a
graffiti themed website or
publish a graffiti magazine.”
