Photographer's Note

Extensive graffiti, Travessa do Fala-só, São José, Lisbon, Portugal.

This could be seen as a "reply" to Stephen Nunney's recent post of graffiti in a Lisbon street, in which he asked if it were art. I said yes, it was, in the appropriate circumstances (i.e. not daubed on a venerable, culturally significant building). I wonder what others think. Certainly Lisbon seems to have accepted the validity of street art, and last year hosted the “Psychogeographic Guide of Lisbon” exhibition, a result of a partnership between Lost Lisbon Hostel / Lost Collective and the Lisbon Street Art and Urban Creativity International Conference. And GAO (Galeria de Arte Urbana) has highlighted a series of "legal walls" in Lisbon, including the one in my photograph: "Free access walls with no need for permission:
Largo da Oliveirinha (near Calçada da Glória). It is located exactly at the end of Travessa do Fala-Só and the nascent side of Largo da Oliveirinha." So it's legal, here at least... This may be the first of a little set of images of Lisbon graffiti.
