STREETFILES // is an independent Street Art & Graffiti photo community. It was launched on the 20th of July 2008 and is the successor of The website is internationally laid-out and therefore in English. Its aim is to document the movement of street art, graffiti and art in public space with the help of its users.

A very unique tool is that pictures are being graded by how popular and up-to-date they are. This creates a mixture of editorial supervision and user-performance. In this way not only the dimension of this global urban movement is shown, but also its quality. The photos get commented and evaluated by Streetfiles members. The lively exchange and a unique rating system (interesting and new photos are featured) is addictive. Streetfiles is free of charge without any restrictions. On the 08th of may 2009 the 100.000th photo was uploaded.

Streetfiles is maintained and developed by Hausburger, Movel and Esher in Berlin Kreuzberg. The registered association Graffitinet e.V. is the supporting organization of the website.

The Streetfiles system is evolving. Small improvements and new features appear almost daily. Moreover there exist many other big ideas on how develop the website further. Feedback is always welcome.
