Graffiti Legend | Everyone who has something to do with graffiti or urban arts in general should have heard about Mr. Jon Naar. Naar is, in addition to Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant, one of the first photojournalists who documented graffiti and its environment in New York City!
His legendary book “The Faith Of Graffiti” was published about 35 years ago and has been re-released in an expanded edition earlier this year. For that reason there were again a lot of specials about him and his book, his photographies and his opinion about the entire graffiti world…
One really interesting and nice thing I apparently missed, was that astonishing video-interview Stussy did with Jon Naar himself, in which Naar talks about his first steps in New York and how he started taking graffiti photos…quite interesting!
