These pictures portray not only the forms, letters and characters, but also of the moments, emotions and impressions that are integral to the act of writing graffiti. The raw inspiration, the adrenaline and the emotional weight of these artful, yet illegal acts are captured faithfully by a member of the cognoscenti.

A writer himself, Ruedione has been a constant companion to some of the best known graffiti artists for many years. His understanding of the lifestyle, the craft and the artistic and the illicit performance allows for a revealing vision that is clearly expressed throughout his work and which captures the act of graffiti as never before.
