A collection of graffiti work showing off the art of the youths in a positive sense. This graffiti was taken from an area of London and I made sure that no part of this wall was missed.

    "Review on Lucy Brooker’s, ‘Generation G’ " Lucy Brooker’s photobook is aiming to portray graffiti as youth’s art and way of expression. The book contains a collection of full colour images of graffiti covered walls with a young girl (late teens/early twenties) on each page moving along the wall. The young girls dress changes throughout, she changes her tops to various hoodys. The book appears to symbolize youths voice through the art expression graffiti. ‘Generation g’ as the books title works very well as it provides the viewer with an initial idea of what the book is about. Graffiti is constantly related back to our youth culture in a mainly negative light where as this book delivers a positive attitude on the subject. The front and back cover use an image in the same style as contained in the book but also includes a title in a graffiti style, ‘generation g…’. As these images are filled with colour and extremely eye catching I feel it was a wise choice to use this as a... More > front cover. The young girl appears on both the back and front cover. On the front cover she is on the far right side, leaning against the wall looking towards the left, on the back she is also on the far right stretching to reach the right edge of the book. The back cover is very affective as it almost looks like the girl is trying push the cover shut, as though to portray closure. The images themselves are vibrant and attractive to the eye; the lighting and composition work well with the theme. Each image has been carefully thought out and successfully represents graffiti as a youth culture. Including the girl within these images emphasizes the aspect of youth clearly but without an obvious feel. She adds to the flow of the book allowing easy viewing from page to page. The photobook presents a clear theme and achieves its portrayal of graffiti as ‘the voice of the youth’. A double page spread was ideal for this photobook as it truly gives you a feel of the natural environment in which the graffiti came from. It uses full bleed within the book, allowing for a more natural flow rather than including frames around each image, it adds connection amongst sequence. The back pages contain a brief artist statement, which identifies exactly what the photobook was aiming to portray. By the statement being at the back of the book it allows the viewer to perceive the images as they wish before reaching its actual intensions. The backgrounds of theses pages are again walls of graffiti continuing the flow rather than concluding it with plain white pages, which would result in quite an abrupt ending.< Less
