Charlene Weisler's urban photography is inspired by the transience and impermanence of street art. Concentrating on the evolving nature of layered graffiti, Weislerâ€™s art captures a timeline of competing efforts and messages eroded by weather and time. Notably, the photographs are â€œas-isâ€ â€“ as she finds them on the streets - and are not edited or changed in any way. The result is a rich compendium of texture, color and form that juxtaposes energy with urban decay. Her haunting photographs create a totally new and self-contained art image.
Weisler is a New York City based photographer who has been chronicling street art since 2004. Her portfolio is located at www.CharleneWeisler.com
