Three decades after publishing her book, Subway Art, photographer Martha Cooper discovers she’s become an unexpected icon of one of the biggest art movements in history.

In 1970s New York, photographer Martha Cooper captured some of the first vivid images of graffiti appearing on the city's subway carriages. Decades later, Martha realises she's become an unexpected icon of the street art world – her visionary photography having inspired the spread of graffiti around the globe. Now, at age 75, Martha must navigate her way through this vastly changed culture.
