Jim Prigoff

New York, NY

Jim Prigoff assembled one of the most extensive bodies of photo documentation of the global mural movement beginning in the 1970s. By the 1980s, he was photographing graffiti and co-produced the book Spraycan Art with friend Henry Chalfant in 1987, which is now considered a classic tome of modern graffiti. He has contributed to numerous books and projects and continues to lecture as a historian on the topics of public murals, graffiti and spraycan art.
