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 lived and still lives in Mouraria 5 minutes walk down down the hill from Tings Lisbon in Graça.
We pass by them several times every week on our way to Martim Moniz and down town. And we enjoy them all the time. In many ways its the best Street Art project around us – the way the photos are printed (some of them directly on the wall) almost brings the portrayed back to life.
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 neighborhood.
