You been covering the New York City Graf scene for 30 years. What finally made you want to put a book out?
Back in the ’70s when I was writing I began to photograph graffiti because it is an efermal art form and I wanted to preserve it.

Then back in the early 1990s my bro SPAR ONE, wanted to publish a book, so we started to organize our subway photos and SPAR began to interview artists.
