My South American Adventure: Escadaria Selarón (aka the craziest street in Rio)

DSC_1695This is possibly the most insane street I’ve ever seen in my life.  It was created by Jorge Selaron over the course of 23years and was only considered “finished” when he died, in 2013 … aka found dead with burn marks on his body on the steps. There are tiles from all over the world, some collected, some donated, some created by Selaron, all individually laid ~ it’s a lifetimes art project stretching over 250m, over 2000 tiles from 60 different countries.

These pictures bring back so many happy memories
