How Graffiti Saved my Dad’s Life (At least for a While)


Description by Jane Gibbens Murphy: A collection of my late father’s graffiti and street art photography. Dad wasn’t your average street art photographer. But then there was nothing average about Dad. For nearly two decades, he was a familiar sight on the graffiti scene in London and beyond, amassing an archive of more than 30,000 photos. This book contains dozens of his photos, along with text by me, describing how his passion kept him going right to the end.


All profits from sales go to St Christopher’s hospice in South London, from where Gordon made some of his final graffiti expeditions.
