About p1xels

p1xels + photographer

p1xels is a Melbourne-based photographer whose subculture-specific photo documentation of the graffiti scene has spanned over nine years. p1xels has worked with highly-regarded local and international artists, documenting their artistic expression. 

p1xels dark and moody compositions are an insight into their passion for exploring urban environments. It is apparent in their work that they have developed a specific style: a triangulation between subject matter, viewpoint and the interpretation of light. 

Preferring to work alone, p1xels has investigated and shot across diverse urban environments. The past decade has seen p1xels travel extensively, both internationally and domestically, allowing them to photograph artists and writers at work, and to investigate empty urban places. p1xels documents these desolate, isolated and beautiful environments through their photography providing a glimpse into a world in which they are fascinated and one which would otherwise not be seen.

Beyond abandoned locations, graffiti belongs at the heart of p1xels ͛ work. In a medium where tags and ‘pieces’ have only a short life span, their portfolio of images allows these works to live on, long after ‘the buff‘ has removed any trace of them.
