In 1970s New York, Martha Cooper captured the birth of the global graffiti art movement. Decades later, she is celebrated as an icon, and at 75 years of age she continues to document not only the dynamic street art and graffiti movement but has also produced decades of photographs that capture the humanity and joy of people living on the fringes of society, within subcultures that, if not for Martha, would remain unseen. Selina Miles’ film captures the vibrancy of the city’s street art scene in the 70s and 80s by paying homage to the trailblazer Martha Cooper (known on the streets as Kodakgirl) who was a chronicler of the artform long before it entered the mainstream.
