Scam #6

Erica Lyle

Erick Lyle’s latest issue of Scam follows a trip he took to Buenos Aires. It is focused on stenciling and the stencil scene there, but reaches out to cover the financial crisis of 2001 (and its subsequent wake and boom), street art, politics, and the politics of street art.
Good lay-out with a lot of graphics and photos. The writing is sharp and humane, one of the finest examples of punk travel reporting.
