In New York … Terry Richardson Street Art Skull Portrait by Bradley Theodore

Artist Bradley Theodore‘s street art of recent months is a series of portraits depicting iconic fashion-world celebrities — such as Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, and Diana Vreeland — as colorful, impressionistic skulls. His recent work pictured below is of infamous downtown photographer and Vice magazine alum Terry Richardson on the exterior wall of a pizza joint on Allen Street in New York’s Lower East Side.

Photographer Stephen Gill’s Photos of Removed Graffiti at FOAM Amsterdam

Last week we paid another visit to FOAM, the wonderful, influential photography museum in Amsterdam, where there is currently a major exhibition of photographs by Stephen Gill. Included in the show were several images from the British photographer’s “Covered or Removed” series, a collection of photos of urban spaces in the U.K. where graffiti has been scrubbed or painted over. Great stuff.

The Surf Photography of Leroy Grannis

This week we added a striking new volume from Taschen to our library of coffee-table photography books at Global Graphica HQ. “Leroy Grannis, Surf Photography of the 1960s and 1970s” is a massive retrospective collection of iconic photographs by one of the leading image-makers of the the genre and the era. Grannis witnessed and exhaustively documented surfing’s modern evolution as sport and sub-culture in Southern California and Hawaii.  We love the picture the editors at Taschen chose for the cover.

(See the street art mural image of Leroy Grannis by Gretta Kruesi in Venice, Los Angeles.)

The Street Photography of Paul McDonough

The wonderful photography of New York City street life circa 1973-1978 has been captured by photographer Paul McDonough, whose work was recently shown at Sasha Wolf Gallery in NYC. Check out the trove McDonough’s images on the gallery’s website. Thanks to another renowned street photographer, Major Deegan, (a.k.a., Daniel Puissant, who also goes by the name Seymour Templar) for bringing McDonough’s work to our attention. It’s really great stuff.
