Bus Stop, il progetto anti-fotografico di Stephen Calcutt | Collater.al

Graffiti can be a great form of art, strong and bully, which adds something to the city and street photography lovers often point their cameras on those pieces of art handed to citizens.

However, Stephen Calcutt, a photographer from Birmingham, has decided to tell another aspect of English art street art, photographing graffiti, literally scratched, on the plexiglass surfaces of his city bus stops.

With his series of abstract images, entitled Bus Stop, declares how those engravings seem almost violations, something that disturbs the vision. Pointing his own lens on those surfaces, perceived as barriers between him and the rest of the world, he makes shots with an anti-photographic attitude that express all the frustration and anger of punk culture.
