With great pleasure i collaborated with the photographer Georges Leconte for a very interesting project in New York.
The photoshoot took place at 5 Pointz ( http://5ptz.com ), New York City (45-46 DAVIS STREET, LONG ISLAND CITY, NY). This wasn’t just a graffiti spot, but NYC’s mecca for artists around the world. It was recently taken down, unfortunately. Watch this video to see what 5ptz represented, as it was under demolition:
