An Ad Takeover Inside an Ad Takeover Inside an Ad Takeover

Over the years I have grown to love the phonebooth at Spring street and Bowery. It sits adjacent to Jay Maisel's infamous building, famous for its ever changing street art and graffiti exterior, and home to some interesting moments in the evolution of the street art scene. A while back I did a small takeover of this phonebooth for the White on White series. After installing the photograph of that takeover back at the location it was originally taken, it only seemed appropriate to continue to do so as the resulting images carry the weight of all of the documented takeovers before them. When I went back this time my favorite phonebooth looked a little beat up and frankly on its last legs. Only time will tell how far this project will go. Enjoy!
