Above the Law
Above the Law gives the viewer an extremely rare insight on the hidden places and people behind graffiti. His work highlights the extreme scenarios ‘painters’ put themselves in, the access they are able to gain and the audacity with which they create their work. Above the Law is an ongoing series, spread across Europe, North America, North Africa and Asia. Various photos from the series comprised Phil’s ‘Our Side of The Tracks’ book, with many more regularly published on his blog.
