A simple tribute to the people who live or lived in this simple narrow alley in Mouraria, Lisbon…in the words of the artist, Camilla Watson who moved to Lisbon in 2007:
"The photographs on these walls are a tribute to the elderly who live here. They walk this beco daily and their spirit makes this corner of Mouraria special."
The tribute is a simple one and the process of getting the photographs on the wall isn’t. She sets up a mobile darkroom in the area she’s going to be working in. Click on the link above if you’d like to read more about her process. In the meantime, enjoy the gallery below this photo.
The gallery below shows these wonderful people, subject of this simple photographic tribute, in the places where they live, love and work.

A window – that which you can look out of, and that which you can look into. Two sides of the same thing, transparent and oft-times mirroring our curiosity of what’s on the other side. Wishing and wondering about a different life maybe? Curious to see how someone else lives?
