I am exploring the East Village. I am interested in this because its the neighborhood I live in, and I think there are many interesting things that are worth photographing there.
I took the first photograph, and you can see it is a peace mural. I know that this is a graffiti mural. My interpretation of this photograph is that its trying to get the message of peace out by expressing this art in the neighborhood.
It has been said that one image is worth a thousand words. This could be true about this photograph because it sends people a message through graffiti art, which may attract attention to people. It reflects my theme in that it was taken in the East Village, but also that it is something interesting, that may not be seen in other neighborhoods.
One thing that I know about the East Village is that there is a lot of graffiti in the area, but most of it may be considered vandalism. One thing that I wonder about graffiti is if its considered art.
