Wrinkles of the City


A French artist has installed giant street portraits in the city of Istanbul, showcasing the characterful features of older Istanbulites.

JR has just finished his latest impressive project, as part of his ‘Wrinkles of the City’ series, on fifteen buildings throughout the Turkish metropolis.

The artist, who is known for his amazing street portraits across the world, explains “the ‘Wrinkles of the City’ project paints a picture of the Twentieth Century by exploring the lives of those who witnessed their cities becoming scarred by the course of history, economic growth and sociocultural changes”.

Discover the different ‘Wrinkles of the City’ installations on this handy map and take a look at JR’s Instagram here.
