But, when we come across a new site that captures the beauty of street-art, occasionally it can be just as rewarding. It's hard to compare seeing something in your own eyes as to seeing it online. You never capture the atmosphere, the vibe, the city, the culture and everything that revolves around the art. What the art is surrounded by, or faces or sits next to is just as important as the reason and cause of the piece being there in the first place.
But, on a rare occasion, some great photographers come along and capture art on the streets that capture the feeling and vibe of everything involved. For example is the image above. The photo was taken at the MBP art show and sums up exactly the sensation that was felt that day. That even rain, can not stop anyone there from having fun (young or old). People painted and enjoyed the day of art regardless of the weather.
The image was captured by Vinny Cornelli who we had the pleasure of meeting briefly at the MBP event. Vinny mentioned a site where he archives his collection of photographs he has been taking over the years. Since we love the image above, we had to try and see how the rest of his work looks.
Introducing, STREET LAYERS.
As written by Vinny in the much inspiring ABOUT page on the site, he describes what SL is and what he hopes to accomplish with it and his photographs:
