1Up, which stands for One United Power, is a Berliner crew risen to the headlines thanks to the huge and obsessive presence of their names in the German capital city... but not only. Whether it's a small tag hidden in the tracks of the Paris metro, a blockbuster made on a building facade in the district of Kreuzberg, or a panel painted on a Copenhagen S-Train, for a keen observer of the European scene of writing, 1UP is synonymous of extreme and uncompromising bombing. This book traces the most significant actions of the group, through 140 impressive pages of photographs, which show that 1UP has become a huge media phenomenon.
Berlin based photographer Peter Stelzig has been documenting Berlin’s graffiti scene through since 1998. Since 2001 he has been focusing primarily on train graffiti. His current book project „Analog vs. Digital – Trainwriting Artphotography, Berlin 2001-2016? is intended not only to portray his own development as a photographer, but also to provide insights into analogue and digital photography techniques. The book focusses on illustrating the unique features as well as the spectrum of possibilities which analogue photography offers. Paragraphs explaning and supporting the photographs or criticially reflecting on developments in the media are another integral part of the book.
