Manette Street artwork

Wandering past Soho, we were surprised to see the buildings along the short stretch of Manette Street (off Charing Cross in Central London) having giant photocopies of people’s faces slapped all over them.

The work is by paste-up supremo external link JR and features photos of women from Morro da Providencia, Rio de Janeiro, “for whom crime, violent loss of loved ones and arbitrary repression are part of everyday life.”
