Christian Voigt manages to find images on his trips that leave us in awe of the world. That might even be his biggest talent, hidden amidst his photos that convey almost hyperrealistic perfection. We stand in front of the images like a child amazed by his first fireworks display and rediscover our sense of wonder for some precious moments. In these moments, Voigt’s monumental pictures open up to us like vast pools for the senses. We gently lose ourselves in an archetypal dune landscape that evokes the realm of myths and fairy tales, and then find ourselves in the historical architecture of an ancient Egyptian temple. Our thoughts cross continents and cultures in these images. They open up breathtaking horizons, where authentic living culture meets the aesthetic culture of images. A new adventure of the senses awaits us with each image.

In his book Get Up Stay Up, author Danny Crofts has put together the bombproof how-to manual of graffiti writing. Crofts breaks it all down with the basics for every mission, with solid advice on how to keep a low profile during night time bombing runs, selecting proper clothing, and finding the right paint and caps to pull off tight graffiti pieces. In the introduction to Get Up Stay Up, Crofts states “Graffiti writers have established themselves in almost every corner of the world. Even in places too inhospitable to provide a regular home, artists have found ways to exploit its potential.” Now those aspiring graffiti writers looking to get into the game can benefit from Crofts’ knowledge and insight about how to beautify their little inhospitable corner of the world.
