Public Declaration

I’ve begun to explore the world of graffiti where a specific message is being made and … is at least vaguely discernable. These messages are, frankly, mostly not very nice with only a handful of neutral and a very rare positive message. I’ve decided not to cherry pick messages, but rather to display every single message I record to ensure a fair representation of the messages carried by graffiti in the areas I’ve been working. Initially that’s been around Kirkintilloch, Scotland.

Where I can reasonably work out what the message says, I’ve added it as a caption which you can view either by hover your mouse pointer over the image or clicking to view full size. I’ve tried to be as precise as possible with spelling, capitalisation and grammar – where there is any.
