‘Pompeii’ by Bastille

This film by theonepointeight shows street artist JR during the making of “The Wrinkles of Los Angeles” in Los Angeles in early 2012. This work “links the memory of the elderly and the architecture of the cities marked by the scars of history, their economic development, and their socio-cultural changes. By meeting and photographing these people to paste their portraits on the walls, JR imagines the wrinkles on their faces as the marks of time, traces of life mixing with the history of the city.”
