When everything comes together but nothing makes sense

When everything comes together but nothing makes sense (WECTBNMS), is a visual study of graffiti culture in Sweden, focusing on the people behind the thriving underground culture. Since graffiti first arrived to Sweden in the mid 1980’s hundreds of graffiti writers or vandals – however they are called – have devoted their lives to the peculiar and controversial form of art; by their actions they gain respect among their own rather small community, whereas are considered merely a nuisance by the general public. While graffiti often is seen as a youth culture and most graffiti writers usually start painting in their teenage years, the addiction grows deep roots that grip many for a lifetime.

The work consist of three different photographic viewpoints on graffiti: Portraiture of graffiti writers, documentary photography on actions relating to graffiti and surfaces cleaned of graffiti. No actual graffiti is shown in the work. In addition to photographs, the project displays official police documents used as evidence in court cases agains graffiti writers.
