About failure in graffiti

​In November 2019 a group of friends traveled to Tashkent in Uzbekistan to paint the local subway system. Their lack of chance is captured in this book.

Edward’s most emotional and intimate publication to this day is a visual essay about failure in graffiti.

As trainwriting happens to be illegal, trains often are protected against unwanted visitors. With high-security levels, success is not always guaranteed.
Sometimes there can be even a complete lack of it.
Every graffiti writer experienced those moments. But yet it is a topic hardly talked about.
Out of a writer's perspective, nothing happens.
Follow four friends around remote areas of Tashkent, trying their luck with the subway for a week.
But nothing happens.
