For me personally 2015 marked a year when things got real and everything – including documenting street art & graffiti and most definitely blogging – was put on the back burner. Nevertheless here’s a small selection of artworks, places and moments that resonated with me this year.

Luna’s 2012 Personal Faves

Now that it’s thankfully almost over, I’ll admit that for largely personal reasons, 2012 was not a banner year. I would have liked to travel and photograph more, but that simply wasn’t in the cards. I’ve selected 30 of my favorite photographs from 2012, which includes both sanctioned and unsanctioned work I shot in New York, Toronto and Boston. These choices highlight outstanding work that resonated with me throughout the year.
