In the digital era, anything analog becomes a refuge not only for the nostalgic, but also for lovers of all that is artisanal, unique, and pure. Analog photography is a perfect example of this, and in the context of graffiti these characteristics become even more powerful. Not only the pieces, the throw-ups, or the tags…but also the lifestyle and the landscapes. When these decisive shots are captured with the freshness and the unique textures that film in old 90s cameras provide, they become physical portrayals full of soul and emotion.

We’ve selected 10 instagram accounts focused on analog photography in the dimension of graffiti, which may be of great interest to lovers of the genre and to the generally curious.

ADRIÁN ROBOS

A life dedicated to drippy ink tags and collectible clothing has its risks. The Valencian photographer is better than anyone at portraying expert writers leaving their names, as quickly as they can. It doesn’t matter if it’s in black and white or color, the important thing is to leave your mark — just not on your clothes.
