My concept was to show street art in public space and if photographers choose, to show how others interact with it. Not so much to simply document someone else's work, or show art intended to hang on a wall that's been left out on the street.

 

That's what I assumed, Stacy. It's a mistake to just copy someone's mural, but it's okay to include it in a street scene, with or without people. Photogs have been doing that in museums forever. 

 

A few months ago, Alamy deleted a bunch of mural shots of mine that were straight copies, after informing me they would be doing so. An artist complained. Fair enough. My pics had been bought for PU.

That seems perfectly legit to me. It's all about the photographer's interpretation. Ultimately, everything depicted in a photo was made by someone or something else (e.g. by Mother Nature). There truly is nothing new under the sun, only new ways of looking at what's already there.

Jeff, one of the few requirement of the competition is that images have to be available on Alamy. If and when this image becomes available on Alamy, please replace it with a preview showing the Alamy Reference number.

Just came back from Brussels where I followed quite a bit of the Comic Book Route - posting those really would be cheating, but they brighten the place up brilliantly. A great idea.
