AUTHOR BIO
Cale Waddacor, a keen photographer, documentarian, and musician, was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. Photography began as a hobby when he first encountered the extraordinary facets of life in his home city.
His journey into the realms of graffiti began more than a decade ago, when he discovered this underground world of wonder. He realized there was very little documented about the country’s burgeoning graffiti scene and began photographing and collating a vast library of his own graffiti images. He launched the GraffitiSouthAfrica.com website in 2011 to create a global awareness of the country’s exciting but relatively unknown graffiti arena.
This book is a testament to his love of the genre and his passion to preserve for posterity the many fascinating works in South Africa.
