Flash #1 is the first published book by Thorfine, containing a first selection of pictures. Thorfine is a young French photographer who captures the lifestyle and prowess of many graffiti writers across Europe. Always using cheap analog cameras for their roughness and disposable use, his instinctive and adrenaline-pumped shots are a first rate account into the graffiti sub-culture, not only from a graffiti standpoint but also from a lifestyle perspective. With shots taken in Paris, Brussels, Berlin and Madrid, following and documenting the 1UP, VMD, KSF or PAL Crews, Thorfine’s self published book is in our opinion a major book.
The pictures of Thorfine were part of the Saucisse Curry Group Show at Urban Spree in May 2014 with a selection of 5 large format pictures and 14 mid-sized photographs, some of them being reproduced in the gallery below.
