Reseña del editor
A rerelease of a classic assessment of graffiti as an art form pairs evocative photography with the Pulitzer-winning journalist's 1974 essay evaluating street art as an expression of identity, politics and urban existence, in an expanded volume that includes 32 pages of additional photos. Simultaneous. 25,000 first printing.
"The Faith is the bible of graffiti. It forever captures the place, the time, and the writings of those of us who made it happen." Snake I
In 1973, author Norman Mailer teamed with photographer Jon Naar to produce The Faith of Graffiti, a fearless exploration of the birth of the street art movement in New York City. The book coupled Mailer's essay on the origins and importance of graffiti in modern urban culture with Naar's radiant, arresting photographs of the young graffiti writers' work. The result was a powerful, impressionistic account of artistic ferment on the streets of a troubled and changing cityand an iconic documentary record of a critical body of work now largely lost to history.
This new edition of The Faith of Graffiti, the first in more than three decades, brings this vibrant workthe seminal document on the origins of street artto contemporary readers. Photographer Jon Naar has enhanced the original with thirty-two pages of additional photographs that are new to this edition, along with an afterword in which he reflects on the project and the meaning it has taken on in the intervening decades. It stands now, as it did then, as a rich survey of a group of outsider artists and the body of work they createdand a provocative defense of a generation that questioned the bounds of authority over aesthetics.Ver Descripción del producto

And is not only interesting for what was happening but also about how was it seeing from the outside, how did stranded people look at it... Norman Mailer tries to understand it, he tries to get what is going on just when magic happened.

Mailer's compelling text remains unchanged, but, while those familiar with "The Faith" will recognize many old graffiti favorites, it is a joy to find that this edition includes a good number of additional images, while Naar himself notes his satisfaction that the photographs - now mostly uncropped - have been allowed to serve his original intent of showing the spirit of that time and place: mid-70s New York city.
ItBooks imprint of Harper Collins are to be congratulated on the excellent design and the very high quality of the photo-reproduction & printing. It all does justice to a seminal work celebrating the life and inventiveness of those many street "taggers", and it is fitting that the cover displays, as Naar had originally intended it should, a photograph of a group of these kids of 30+ years ago. This work is a true document of its time and place. Go buy a copy now!
