Photographer Michelle Ladin is documenting the street art of Williamsburg in the photo series above. Ladin says that her project aims to â€œ[capture] the people's artâ€"in the momentâ€"before it is washed away, torn down or covered up.â€
By photographing graffiti and street art before it is covered up, Michelle Ladin protects the legacy of â€œtrend setters, the abstract, graffiti artists, the right to free speech, stencil, paste, spray, post and slap.â€
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.
