Writers United

The critically acclaimed book Writers United has
been reprinted!

OUT June 2009

Writers United was a groundbreaking report and photo book when it was
first released in 2005. Since then, it has inspired photographers and journalists
worldwide. But Writers United still remains as a standard work in the genre.
After having been sold out for a few years, it is now being issued in a revised
Writers United offers a close-up portrait of one of the world’s most famous
graffiti crews, Writers United Football Club (WUFC). Six members with completely
different personalities but a common goal. Since the formation of
WUFC at a football venue in the Stockholm suburb Nacka fifteen years ago,
they have written their name on thousands of trains and walls throughout
Europe. Like rock musicians, graffiti writers charge their work with style and
attitude. And just like in any successful band, each WUFC member has his own
clear role. The hyperactive writers Uzi and Que are its frontmen.
For a couple of years, journalist Björn Almqvist and photographer Emil Hagelin
followed WUFC and a few of their friends. A new world is opened to the
reader through in-depth interviews and vivid reports. We follow them from getting
ready in their homes to getting into dark tunnels to write. All year round,
they risk injury and penalties to see their names on the trains. Their lifestyle
may seem hard to understand. Why do they write, how do they view their
work, and what kind of people are they really?
