BEYOND THE STREETS worked closely with Cooper to assemble over 800 photos - many pulled from dozens of boxes of slides that had not been opened since they were first shot over 40 years ago.
Martha Cooper is a documentary photographer known worldwide for capturing the magic of NYC graffiti in the 1980s. Her photos of young artists painting at night and their bold pieces blazing through the burned out Bronx landscapes at daybreak, helped launch a global art movement that continues today
SPRAY NATION SIGNED LIMITED EDITION BOOK
To create Spray Nation, Cooper and editor Roger Gastman pored through hundreds of thousands of 35mm Kodachrome slides to highlight lost moments of the 1980s NY graffiti scene; they range from obscure tags to portraits, action shots, walls, and painted subway cars. Accompanied by heartfelt essays, the book celebrates Cooper’s drive, spirit, and singular vision. Ultimately, the images capture a gritty New York era that is now a part of graffiti history and preserved in this collection of Martha’s work. Exclusively on BEYOND THE STREETS, this edition is signed by Martha Cooper.
THE OUTTAKES BOOK
Exclusively on BEYOND THE STREETS, Martha Cooper’s newest release dives deep into her archive of never-before-seen images and outtakes of early 1980s NYC graffiti. These rare photos, including tags, portraits, action shots, walls, and painted subway cars, capture the golden age of graffiti and its practitioners at a time when few people were paying attention.
POSTER & POST CARDS
This edition includes an exclusive 46” x 33” oversized poster of Spray Nation’s cover and six collectible post cards of Martha Cooper’s iconic images from this limited edition collection.
The limited edition box set is packaged in a collector’s box with premium full color printing, magnetic closure and ribbon, making this a must-have for any fan, graffiti artist, book collector, or history buff.
“...they knew that she had the skills, but more importantly she had the curiosity, the reporter’s instinct and the resolute disposition to push through a freshly cut hole in a rusty fence…”
