Our multilingual friend Stephane Gripari spent his childhood in Egypt, Greece, Switzerland, Somalia, Libya, Zaire, and Italy before finally settling in London. He started taking photographs at the age of 12 and has continued to travel extensively in his adult years, a camera permanently around his neck. We especially like his documentation of international graffiti, which can be viewed at Gripari’s photographic exhibition “Architexture,” along with other works, at the Blackall Studios in Shoreditch from June 23 to 28. For more information, go to Stephane Gripari.
