The Wrinkles of the City

29 11 2010

Amazing installation project by French photographer JR. The wrinkles of the city project questions the memory of a city and its inhabitants. Using Shanghai and its resident as his subject.  You can feel the story of the spaces.  Shanghai is such a vibrant modern metropolis with constant new buildings going up every minute of the day.  Is it a good idea to tear down everything old?  And if we do, how long will the memories last?

Check out JR work here.
