Photographer's Note

Street Art Addiction Is Real!

Whereas the wall in my previous photo is an official street art project, the walls and doors I show today are pretty unofficial and used by many artists to express their creativity or maybe also their rebelliousness. These two photos are both impressions from Freeman Alley, which is found just off Rivington Street in the Bowery neighbourhood of Manhattan.

A dead-end alley, Freeman Alley is full of street art, graffiti, posters, and stickers, not rarely with political messages. I could have included many more photos of this place easily and initially this was a four-photo picture, but in that first version, too many details got lost. I will probably show more from Freeman Alley in future posts as well and other parts may be posted by my dad or Brenda at a later moment. The photo was taken during the TE-meeting with Brenda, whom we had asked to show some of the less touristy parts of New York City. The title “Street Art Addiction Is Real” was taken from one of the stickers we found in the alley. It is seen in the bottom half of the left hand side photo. I added a close-up to the WS.
