COPENHAGEN URBAN STREETS (part 4)


The view above is one of the smaller entrances into Christiana without any signage or other indicators of moving into a different type of public space the graffiti acts as a welcome guide announcing a shift in scenery. Christiana is a free town inside but separate from the city of Copenhagen. It was established in 1971 and currently has approximately 800 permanent residents. As mentioned before photography is prohibited inside the community that is the site of a former military base.

I prefer cropping compositions while in the process of documenting if it all possible. Another technique embraces happy accidents by photographing at the hip without looking thru a viewfinder. These happy accidents create interesting compositions in a random method. The final row of examples helps provide context with the surrounding environment. Sometimes to find the best examples of graffiti one must engage in wonder wandering and the art of accidental adventure.
