Video: Here Comes The Neighborhood VOL 1.7 “Martha Cooper”

Chapter 7 of the stellar web documentary series Here Comes The Neighborhood  focus’s on legendary photographer Martha Cooper. Cooper has been documenting graffiti and graffiti writers since the late 1970s. She has remained a fixture in the community and culture, and has been documenting the Wynwood Walls since the project began in 2009. Her photos tell the story of the Wynwood Walls from its inception to expansion, and all of the artists and their respective works. In graffiti and street art, nothing is permanent, even commissioned walls. Because of the temporary nature of the medium, Martha’s photos outlast almost every piece of graffiti or street art itself.
