Valencia is Spain’s third largest city and is a hotbed of vibrant street art. Photographer Luz A. Martín, a native of Valencia, has been wandering the streets of her hometown capturing the artwork that brings the walls, alleyways and buildings to life. Utilizing rain gutters, window frames, doorframes and other such urban surfaces the city’s street artists work their images and designs into the city’s surfaces in a way that makes them seem like they’ve been there all along. Martín has fixated on this specific quality of Valencia’s streets and her photographs of graffiti textures are as interesting and visually compelling as the photographs of the pieces in situ. Including many photographs of these street art textures, Textura doubles as a pattern book, making them available as royalty-free images.
Luz Martín’s photographs have been published in such places as The New York Times, Time Out London, El Pais, El Mundo and The Herald Tribune; in 2007 her photography book Campanas Vivas was released, celebrating the centuries old ritual of ringing bells in Valencia.
