A city that 'changes faster than its inhabitants wrinkle,' Cartagena, Spain is one of Parisian street artist, JR's many canvases. JR has photographed Cartagena's older population, pasting their faces over the city's walls, in homage to these older residents- the wrinkles of Cartagena, the city's foundation. This mini documentary ('The Wrinkles of the City') follows the voices and thoughts of Cartagena's older residents, as they narrate the city's changes and their role in Cartagena's history. The images and filming are beautiful, with a soundtrack that transports you into a hazy Spanish world. Watch it below:
