The magazine about turning images into income sees printed edition sales growing, but at 330g it's very expensive to mail worldwide (more than the £4.95 cover price) and in the UK it's only found in the main WHSmith stores... and sells out fast.

Craig Robinson is a Berlin based photographer from the U.S. who specializes in photographs of people and events. He is currently working on a documentary project on street art and street artists in Berlin. With a series of artist interviews and photos Craig intends to showcase the most active urban artists in Berlin and shed a little light into the shadows. International artists like Banksy and BLU have left their historical mark on Berlin's walls, Berlin street art tours are cropping up and Berlin street artists are beginning to gain international recognition.

- Why do street artists take the risk to paint on public walls?
- Is urban art a form of protest or city beautification?
- What are the differences between graffiti, tagging and street art?
- Anonymity vs. fame: who shuns and who plays the gallery game?
- Is making money with street art ‘selling out’ or self empowerment?

The ever-changing city of Berlin is now falling victim to the same gentrification schemes perpetrated by urban planners and 'profit first' developers on selected areas of cities around the globe. In the midst of rapid change and an uncertain future, the urban artist’s voice is never more relevant, never more current, never more vital than it is today.
