Graffiti provokes a response.
Emotional. Visceral. Basic. A cry.
These belgradestreets; the people who live, love and work here, provoke me.
Graffiti enrages, captures, beguiles us.
I’d like to share a line of poetry, and a heartfelt thank you…
“For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror
which we are still just able to endure,
and we are so awed because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.
Every angel is terrifying.”
Poetry from Duino Elegies by Rainer Maria Rilke, The First Elegy

Good shots, Andy. Graffiti can be engaging and beautiful sometimes!
Mike, thank you, photographing this, and making a point, is hard as it is a “tourist” destination here…so appreciate your comment…
They keep changing – are they? I haven’t seen the first one in January.
Great combination of words and images. You really capture the power of graffiti here.
There is always something new there, documenting the graffiti on belgradestreets could be the work of a lifetime… 🙂
Thank you, one of my favourite subjects!
I think you are right!
Thanks, love to capture the graffiti here on belgradestreets!
