Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris

July 12th, 2009

Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris is a study depicting the stylistic diversity found in Parisian graffiti tags. Evan Roth photographed over 2400 graffiti tags in Paris and archived, tagged and sorted them by letter. Then he filtered out the 10 most used letters (A,E,I,K,N,O,R,S,T and U) and for each of them he isolated eighteen tags to represent the diversity and range of that specific character. You can browse the whole collection on the website of the Fondation Cartier.

“Graffiti Taxonomy: Paris” is part of the “Born In The Streets – Graffiti” exhibition at Fondation Cartier in Paris France. You can go and see it till November 29th, 2009.
