French photographer and street artist JR has produced a public art project in Rio. Known for his massive scale black and white portraits, JR recently covered a hill side shanty town with his trademark imagery. The photos make the houses almost seem alive, with the intricate emotional details of his subject’s faces, truly mesmerising.
And so, another decade begins . . a very different one, I hope, to the last . . . a time when it feels right to begin, what could be, a life's work. I think it's always better not to begin that too soon, with reckless abandon . . . . but to follow the signs, to read the signs, and act on them.
For hope and inspiration, here would be the place to look.
Every city has it's decade . . . . and every dog has it's day.
