The eyes of the city...



An old aqueduct - the Arcs of Lapa (os Arcos da Lapa) - today is the link between the downtown and the district of Saint Theresa. The yellow little ferry is one of the attractions of the city.

The images - by the French photographer JR - glued in the arcs are part of the commemorations of the Year of France in Brazil.

  2. Very eye-catching artwork! ;)

    Seriously, I like it. Very striking. That little tram is so cute too. I would definitely take a ride on it — the views from up there will be unique, to say the least.

What time is it in Rio?

What about the weather?

Who, where or when?

What?

We walk by the streets of our city and very often we don’t realize its images, which are there and which suddenly are not any more.

To photograph and glance is to guard images, impressions. It is also to re-discover the space where we live, our imaginary and scenario of our lives.

Our glance is not enough. It is necessary that others look what we see.

Andamos pelas ruas de nossa cidade e muitas vezes não percebemos suas imagens, que estão ali e que de repente não estão mais.

Fotografar e olhar é guardar imagens, impressões. É também redescobrir o espaço em que vivemos, nosso imaginário e cenário de nossas vidas.

Nosso olhar não basta. É preciso que outros olhem o que vemos.


Who see me?

To whom?
