AURI SACRA FAMES No.1
– – –
The year 2012: Streetfiles.org is the No.1 source for checking out graffiti. Print as a medium for publishing photos of graffiti is dead, at least that’s what you did hear from everybody back then, even in the alleged world’s capital of graffiti Berlin. And it was true: what Berlin graffiti is all about was not to be found in magazines. The impression you would get online, where spotters did upload the results of their trips through the city, looking for trains, tags and pieces, was closer to reality as any magazine was able to show.
So instead of publishing just another magazine where writer friends of the editors or people who send in their stuff fill the pages, a new concept evolved, learning from the online advantages. O’CLOCK is rocking Kreuzberg with fresh tags? NAKZ is killing it on S-Bahn trains? ACID79 burns a hall of fame? Go out, take photos and put them in the magazine, always aiming to provide a representative documentation of the scene in a clear and clean layout.
The result was a 100 paged softcover magazine including shots from only a handful of people in chapters like tags, S-Bahn, subway stations, street and walls featuring MOAR, SPIDER, BUZZ, ROGER, CAUSE, DOROC, HEMAN, TIN, KRIPOE, SKY7, NICK, FINO, COST, ROCCO, TRIK, FISO, BAMBOO, SAZO, BACKE, AZUR, ZOUK, SHAKE as well as a special on COKE and an interview special DROW.
Luckily there’s life in the old dog yet, even when it comes to print and the predictions have been wrong. The magazine was a success, leading to several following issues with the same concept and far more content. This is the very last chance to order new copies of the first issue!
