Camilla Watson’s ‘A Tribute’ exhibition is a celebration of the elderly community in Lisbon’s Mouraria area.
We get hundreds of news updates about Lisbon everyday. The best and most relevant stories we share with friends, guests and followers here on Tings Lisbon’s blog. Mostly stories about things that interest us personally or things that are relevant to our hotel or Graça.
Like the story from The Evening Standard about photographer Camilla Watson portraits of the locals who lives/lived in Mouraria – the part of town at the bottom of the hill 5 minutes walk down from Graca. We pass by them several times every week on our way to Martim Moniz and down town.
Walk around the Mouraria area of Lisbon, one of the city’s oldest parts, and you might discover a series of portraits printed onto the ancient walls.
This is the work of Brit-born photographer Camilla Watson.
Named ‘A Tribute’, the wall-based artwork is a series of portraits of the elderly members of the community, which weaves its way physically and metaphorically through the neighbourhood.
