Green scarf graffiti

I have mixed feelings about graffiti but consider it of interest where an issue or idea is expressed or genuine artistic ability is displayed. In this case the green scarf is a powerful symbol of an important social/political movement.

One of the challenges in photographing the building interiors was the relatively low light levels and the need to shoot handheld.

Ushuaia, Argentina.
