Description

UPDATED WITH A POSTSCRIPT IN JUNE 2019 

Gordon Gibbens wasn’t your average street art photographer. But then there was never anything average about Gordon…

For nearly two decades Gordon was a familiar sight on the graffiti scene in London and beyond, amassing an archive of more than 30,000 photos. This book collects dozens of his photos, with a funny and moving text by his daughter Jane, describing how his love of street art kept him going right to the very end.

All profits from the book will be donated to St Christopher’s hospice in Sydenham, South London, from where Gordon made some of his final graffiti expeditions.
