Week 1: Photo catalog

I’m setting myself an exercise: each week find a collection of things in Moscow to photograph. This week, I collected some sidewalk ads. Unlike the chalked-on slogans and notices I see around university campuses in the US, these are spray-painted on, often repeated a few times within a block or two. They tend to proliferate around busy metro exits, promoting websites, services, even offering directional help for nearby shops or restaurants. It’s a pretty functional genre, but still a part of the pedestrian landscape. More here.
