One of the few photographers documenting the NYC graffiti movement in the early 70s, Jack Stewart captured some of the most crucial moments in the history of the scene. Stewart studied at Yale with Willem de Kooning and Josef Albers, and went on to serve as the Chairman of the Arts Department at Cooper Union and Vice President of the Rhode Island School of Design. He is credited with having one of the most exhaustive and important photo collections of the graffiti era. Jack Stewart's book, Graffiti Kings: New York City Mass Transit Art of the 1970s, collects these photos, as well as his writing, and is one of the most essential books on the subject.
