Photographer's Note

I was walking on the Highline recently, when I saw a glimpse of this mural in the distance. I knew immediately that I had to go back down to the street and photographic it.

This is the work of Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra. He’s painted several beautiful murals here in NYC, and many more around the world. The title of this work is “Tolerance”, and it pays tribute to two of the greatest, world humanitarians, who both worked tirelessly in India: Mother Teresa, and Mahatma Gandhi. They are connected in this mural by the colors of the Indian flag.

This building is a typical tenement found in the Chelsea neighborhood. I thought about cropping the smaller building on the right, but I liked its simple architecture. After doing some research, I found out that it was originally a stable, built in the 1880’s.

In the WS is another mural by Kobra, currently located in the East Village. I’m sure you will instantly recognize the subject. :-)
