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.
