Driving through Las Cruces, you pass through a constantly growing city; whether you’re driving to work, school, home etc. You pass by art everyday and barely have a second to acknowledge the growing community of it. For this project, I chose to highlight (literally) graffiti throughout town. Mainly on the block of Espina, Solano, and Lohman you can find your favorite pop culture icons plastered on a wall; with the technique of the individual artist shining vibrantly.
I chose to do nighttime photography, I set my exposures and if it was too dark in the environment, I’d take two flashlights during the duration of the exposure and paint over the paintings.
