Photographing sticker art has become an accidental hobby for me. I never intended to have this hobby, it well… just kind of happened. It became an interest when I realized that I kept finding stickers that I fell in love with and didn’t want to forget. That’s when the camera came out.
When I walked around in the city, I feel lucky if I find a fresh sticker art that hasn’t been aged by the weather or peeled off another way. If I can find a whole one, untouched, it’s the ideal. That’s what I try to photograph and make record of. When I found this first one, I’m not sure how long it had been there. Someone attempted to peel it off, cover it up, and still, it remained. Parts of it might be missing, but we can still tell what it’s trying to say. That was what I found important.
Pac-Man ghost was found near the end of my outing, but he begged me to take one last shot, after I had already buried my camera deep inside my bag… I found him too be excellent to by-pass. The sticker grouping in the third shot is a literal treasure trove of artful interest. I show a couple close-ups here so you can see what I mean.
