JR and brooklyn-based artist José Parlá are in Havana, Cuba in order develop his latest installment of the series ‘the wrinkles of the city’.
In this unique collaboration JR is currently photographing the city’s elderly inhabitants, then creating gigantic prints from the sitter’s likeliness. these massive images are then wheat-pasted onto the facades of Havana’s building exteriors and decorated with the swirling paint strokes of Parlá.
‘wrinkles of the city’ Havana, enabling an encounter between the subject and observer, grounding the passerby in the humanity of the region. We really admire this project and could not help but post alot of their images ! Enjoy & support.
