Janne Riikonen


Personalia is a visual study of graffiti culture in Sweden, focusing on the people behind the thriving underground culture. Thousands of graffiti writers devote their lives to the peculiar and controversial form of art; by their actions they gain respect and fame among their own rather small community, whereas are considered merely a nuisance by the general public. While graffiti often is seen as a youth culture and most graffiti writers start painting in their teenage years, the addiction grows deep roots that grip many for a lifetime.

The book is an excerpt of Riikonen's work When everything comes together but nothing makes sense.
