Pictures From Orion

The work of Brazilian street-artist-cum-photographer Alexandre Orión has already been around a couple of blogs, and quite rightly so: His street art looks cool and self-assured, but his decision to tuzn it into set pieces for little dramas and comedies really is one of those strokes of genius that I can only envy and admire.
