This iReport is part of an assignment:
Art where you live
Street Art Documents Times (Amsterdam)
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
I have been photographing street art on my travels for a few years now. I enjoy comparing the differences and similarities found in street art from around the world. It's also very interesting to me to see how the same pieces of art morph and change with the passing time, like a living canvas.
For example, compare photo #1 in this iReport, taken in early May, 2012 in Amsterdam to photo #1 in the following iReport, taken in November, 2008. http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-432654
I took both photos at the same place. You can see how much that piece has changed in four years.
I enjoy photographing street art because it is ever changing. I know it won't be around very long and I want to capture it before it disappears.
