Not since Subway Art has a photography book given such intimate public access to the underground world of graffiti vandalism. Bark at the Moon presents Blake Kunin’s seven-year blitz in action film photography shadowing graffiti’s most infamous nightcrawlers: ADEK, BK, CH, EASY, GOOG, GUSE, HOUND, LEWY, MALVO, MERCH, MQ, and more.
Bark at The Moon is a photographic documentation of graffiti’s secretive culture using stunning action shots of street vandalism, street fights, mobbing, and black book paraphernalia: a veritable bestiary of street savagery. Kunin’s film shot selection, darkroom developing, and meticulous book layout assures an intensity that escalates at the turn of every page.
Blake Kunin (b. 1994) is an American photographer born and raised in San Francisco, California. He is known for his documentary style photography. Blake lives in Brooklyn, New York where he works from his in-home dark-room processing film and making silver gelatin prints.
“Blake Kunin’s photos scare the living daylights out of me. My love of chaos and anarchy on the streets has been ongoing for decades. These photographs let me study, in comfort, the bold lines & gestures that still resonate with me to this very day with more urgency than ever.” -Barry McGee
