​When Weston Henry returned to Phoenix after a stint in Albuquerque, he had a renewed passion to explore the city. 

He rode his bike around town with a camera in tow, photographed the spots that made him fall in love with the pavement paradise, and quickly noticed that most of his shots were of local pieces of graffiti. 

"It's the way the colors and the graphics and the bold letters transformed into something else," Henry says. "I've always been drawn to that, and I guess that's why I started taking pictures of [graffiti]."

​The result is Henry's coffee table book, Phoenix Canvas

The 44-page work collects photographs of some of the city's most detailed, vivid, and poignant pieces completely unique to Phoenix from local street artists including Lalo Cota, Breeze, and DOSE, to name a few. 

"Over the few years I [took photos], and I wanted something tangible. I just wanted to create something from it." Henry says.

The co-owner of local art spot/old school arcade, Cade Gallery, Henry is selling the book on the gallery website and at his space for $15. He also hopes to stock it in similar locations in the area

He says Phoenix Canvas is his attempt to "create something a little bigger than [himself]," and to inspire people to look at the city in the same way he does.

"Hopefully this will inspire them to explore Phoenix," he says. "Whether it's graffiti or cool buildings, it's a chance to explore your city."
