Alex Fakso is one of the world's leading photographers of the underground graffiti scene, who began his career as a skate photographer in the early '90s. He published his first book Heavy Metal in 2006 and his second book Fast or Die in 2011.
He's recently been in Brazil working on projects with street artist duo Os Gemeos, while preparing for an upcoming exhibition that opened in London yesterday, December 12, 2012. Titled Santa in Camo, it features 15 photographs and an installation from Tokyo, Moscow, Milan, and other cities around the world, examining global crisis and the underground.
Alex shared a few works from this exhibition and the stories behind them for our latest portfolio review.
