EDWARD NIGHTINGALE „I came into contact with graffiti through hiphop in my early teenager years. since I was a young, insecure boy I was thankful for this opportunity to get some kind of identity without being in the center of attention. Ever since my fascination for graffiti started I was obsessed with books about it. Like many others I soaked up everything about graffiti that I could get my fingers on. Wich sadly was not too much at that time. What I always liked most were the pictures showing the act of writing over the finished pieces. It gave me a glimpse of how it was to be there. To paint in a certain place. I have to say that that to me graffiti is mainly about the experience and the feelings that you get while being in unusual places. Many people might have a different opinion about that but that’s just what it’s like to me. When I got older my technical knowledge and the advantages of digital imaging allowed me to go deeper into that topic. The need or the urge to capture those wonderful moments slowly took over the urge to paint myself. While painting I was always focused on the act itself but while taking pictures I could capture this place. It’s like writing down a beautiful memory. Today, more than ever I feel the urge to capture as much as possible of Graffiti's first child: trainwriting. The look and feel of train tracks and especially tunnels is unique and the adrenaline I get from it helps me to forget the grey swath of my daily routines. I wish I would have used my younger years more for traveling than going to the same yards over and over again because a lot of nice trains have disappeared and a lot of places became really hard to acces due to today’s technological possibilities. “It’s like writing down a beautiful memory.” When I see the heroes of my childhood like Martha Cooper, Kaos, Chintz and others growing old with graffiti this gives me this wonderful feeling that maybe I’ll be also this lucky to grow old with the most wonderful form of vandalism.“ ] 32
