Martha Cooper, The Iconic NY Street Photographer & Graffiti Documentarian

Updated: Apr 28, 2021

Legendary photojournalist Martha Cooper hardly needs an introduction. Since the 1970’s she has documented the meteoric rise of graffiti into the street art phenomenon it has become today. Her best-selling book, Subway Art, remains the unofficial graffiti “bible” and served as inspiration to iconic artists such as Shepard Fairey and OSGEMEOS. Even now in her late 70’s Ms. Cooper radiates a youthful enthusiasm and continues documenting the evolution of street art in NYC and beyond. She is currently with an exhibition highlighting her work at the Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art in Berlin. Like her Instagram says: still snappin’. @marthacoopergram
