Rose Beton Festival - Toulouse

Curated by Tilt, this year’s Rose Beton Festival in Toulouse is dedicated to the roots of graffiti and specially New York.

So to kick start the three months festival in the pink city, a photographic exhibition held at the oldest art space for photography, Chateau d’Eau retraces iconic moments from the NY subway trains and graffiti scene with legendary graffiti photographers Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant.

Both had a very different approach when documenting the scene. Martha Cooper was interested in the overall scene as well as the context, while Henry Chalfant focussed on the graffiti itself.

On the lower ground floor a 15 meters wide installation showcases for the first time all the trains photographed by Henry Chalfant.
