Walls Around The World

Vintage graffiti, Durham, NC

Walls can represent a negative meaning as they might describe someone’s inability to let go or show emotions, or obstacles that we encounter in our lives; but walls can also be a beautiful blank canvas with endless possibilities.

They can be decorated with nostalgic and happy memories, they can be turned into historical pieces of art and they can provide shelter. Below, I present a photo series of walls from across my travels. Enjoy!
