This is a nostalgic, visual account of the best time and place to be a graffiti writer. In the 1980s, brothers Kenny, a.k.a. KEY, and Paul, a.k.a. CAVS, immersed themselves in the graffiti scene in the Boogie Down Bronx, dutifully photographing hundreds of pieces on now-discontinued MTA subway cars and capturing their proud comrades before, during, and after the act. Bombing White Elephants with their pilot markers and documenting them with their cameras, which they always carried, they were on the ride of their livesuntil 1989, when the last painted train was removed from service. Tags by names like QUIK, IZTHEWIZ, and many others appear here in color exposures, and dozens of artists share stories and drop knowledge with no filter. A foreword by graffiti historian Henry Chalfant, coproducer of Style Warsthe seminal documentary on New York graffiti and hip-hop culturekicks things off.


Paul Cavalieri was born in New York City. At an early age, Paul started taking pictures of whatever caught his attention. He started writing graffiti at the age of 16. In 1983, Paul started to photograph graffiti under the East 238th Street Bridge.
