Through The Lens February – David Russell Photography

Last month saw some amazing work from Melbourne’s graffiti and street art community, painting all manner of shapes and sizes from small canvases to mega productions spanning as far as the boom arm would allow. As for the laneways there is always a fresh burner or two amongst all the of the mess, which I love so much all those layers Its like a living breathing entity. I can’t wait to bring you next months crop of photos, already so much happened and we are only four days in to the month of March, till then peace out peeps
