This is not about really pretty photographs. It is not about graffiti or street art. It is about philosophies, causes, social mores and victims.

The artists themselves have chosen to remain anonymous or semi anonymous. These images tell their own stories.

These images form only a portion of a continuing project on political street art/graffiti that I have been undertaking taken over the past several years. They are provocative, confronting, sometimes controversial and, some, even with a touch of self depreciating humour but always thought provoking.

Quite often these images are of fleeting appearance. The current NSW government has instituted a “clean up” street art/graffiti policy where anyone can “request” the removal of the “offending” image and it must be removed within 24 hours irrespective of its artistic value.

Unlike me, you may disagree, sometimes evenly quite strongly, with the sentiments expressed by the artists or by the fact that the images are street art/graffiti on public buildings.

But, if any one image makes just one person stop, think about, or question their own attitude or perception, then this work has been successful.
