Smiling portraits light up New York's Rockefeller Center

Portrait photographsA French artist has transformed New York's Rockefeller Center by projecting 250 portrait photographs onto the facade of its main art deco building in a massive public art project.

Photographer Agnes Winter's "Monument to Smile" features photographs of New Yorkers of all ages grinning across 50 floors of the landmark 30 Rockefeller Plaza, a 1930s tower that dominates the midtown Manhattan center.

The photographs are beamed from 12 projectors set up in a department store across the other side of Fifth Avenue from the Rockefeller Center, a complex of several commercial buildings set among a large, open public space.

Two more pictures after the jump.
