Sheffield based urban artist Kid Acne and French photographer Patrick Guedj combine their efforts in this publication as they explore night life around the world. The root of this particular project was an exhibition on the railing of Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris which featured work by Patrick Guedj. The photos, on display for 24 hours a day, were subject to vandalism. This episode led to the idea of offering an established graffiti artist a creative space and to combine both their crafts. In 'Night Birds', Kid Acne comments via his spray on Guedj's work.
