Photographer Michelle Ladin is documenting the street art of Williamsburg in the photo series above. Ladin says that her project aims to “[capture] the people's art—in the moment—before it is washed away, torn down or covered up.”

By photographing graffiti and street art before it is covered up, Michelle Ladin protects the legacy of “trend setters, the abstract, graffiti artists, the right to free speech, stencil, paste, spray, post and slap.”

Implications - Consumers are no longer just looking for attractive imagery in the artwork they look at. Products featuring a familiar element allow customers to have a closer connection to their purchases. Companies trying to increase their level of buyers could focus on this.
