Street Art is an art form brought directly to the viewer, in many cases without any prior selection by curators, art critics or the media. In composing each photograph I position myself near existing Street Art, often in lonely, urban areas, and then wait for people to walk by. Through their reactions or lack of reaction to the artworks they become both viewers of and participants in an art making process. The people in these pieces become a part of an art event themselves. Ripped paper or the application of paint over the original art work documents traces of former interactions with the art by unknown participants and shows another layer of art mediated by urban life. By choosing the specific street art in its unique, if out of the way location, I maintain a degree of control over the process while having no control over the people or actions that will become an inherent part of the photograph.
