What are you celebrating this season? We’re celebrating BSA readers and fans with a holiday assorted chocolate box of 15 of the smartest and tastiest people we know. Each day until the new year we ask a guest to take a moment to reflect on 2015 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for him or her. It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and saying ‘thank you’ for inspiring us throughout the year.
Mark Rigney is a photographer, curator, designer, blogger and art zine maker originally from Ireland and now running UKs Hookedblog for its 10th year in East London. His photos have appeared in numerous books including Untitled III: This is Street Art and The Art of Rebellion and quite a few times in VNA (Very Nearly Almost) as well as multiple illustrious Street Art sites like BSA.

Artist: Jordan Seiler

This has been a year filled with art, travel, good company and food for me, catching up with old friends across the globe and meeting new ones. It has also been a year filled with ad takeovers.
Through our friend Vermibus we first met New York artist Jordan Seiler in Berlin on a trip that coincided with the opening of Open Walls Berlin, a new gallery space where the two artists had a joint exhibition together. I was invited to accompany them both to capture them hitting up the bus shelters in the neighbourhood, removing the advertising and replacing the posters with their art.
A month later I joined Vermibus again to document his month long ‘Unveiling Beauty’ project which saw him travelling to New York, London, Milan and Paris, installing works in each city. My documenting of ad busters continued last month with Jordan Seiler visiting London and installing a number of works across the city including this piece in East London.
