Personalia – A photobook about Swedish graffiti writers
Personalia presents some of the most active and prominent graffiti writers from Sweden and depicts their lifestyle.
For four years photographer Janne Riikonen infiltrated the Swedish graffiti scene by photographing writers and following them on missions. Gradually he got accepted into the scene, and got to meet hundreds of writers all across the country. The static photographs present writers as the people they are and invites the readers to a private meeting with them.

Showcasing the many different walks of life encompassed by practitioners, Personalia looks past the simplistic notions held by the general public of what graffiti culture is and who identifies with it. The finely designed book comes in limited edition of 800 copies. Follow Janne on Instagram here: janne_riikonen
