  • For the first time in all history, the power and visibility of street culture have brought the world’s diverse subcultures together to share the same space. Bike messengers and skateboarders; graffiti writers on worldwide missions; DJs and fashionistas scouring every small neighbourhood store for rare finds; these are some of the heralds of a scene that includes new urban folk arts, flea markets, clubs, insistent and inspiring music, studios and workspaces, galleries and cafes, gangs and drugs - and love in a myriad of forms. From juggernauts like hip-hop and punk to much smaller but equally inspiring subcultures endemic to the streets of the Brazilian mega-cities, South African townships and the crowds of Mumbai, “Street World” is the only book to document it all.
