From the engravings of Pompeii to those of tourists on ancient ruins, cacti, trees and other anonymous surfaces, humanity was born a tagger. But graffiti is an energy that emerges only to disappear. What remains? Traces and wounds, to steal Henri Michaux’s words.

Gathering together forty five international artists, both established and emerging, In the Name of the Name – The Sensitive Surfaces of Graffiti is an intimate archive featuring all kinds of photography: atmospheric, action, pictorial and even police photography. From Los Angeles to Paris, passing through London and Sao Paulo, the book reveals the flipside of graffiti, or all that which the citylife tries to conceal.

In the Name of the Name is not a book about graffiti photography, on the contrary – it discloses how the graffiti scene was deeply permeated by photography. Graffiti is a feeling, an affect, an attitude, a modus operandi. It is a mental, obsessive and physical relationship with everything marginal. Graffiti is an early form of writing, rooted in prehistorical times and childhood years.
