After spending some time in Lisbon, the artist wanted to pay a special tribute to the elderly population, so she developed a special technique of printing images in a board and stick it directly in the walls with the name of each and everyone of the real models.

Here you will find some characters that you can actually meet in real life, in daytime situations. Over the time, Camilla Watson manage to develop a technique of printing directly on the walls, with a super long exposure and special equipment.
