JR, the suburb became a gallery

In a remote Brazilian favela some giant billboardsappeared, showing pictures of eyes and faces in various expressions, no one knew where they came from. Well, the author is JR. Photographer and street artist, 25 years old from France, used to work at the edge of the law.

JR, using a camera that hefound on the subway (this say the legend), transforms the images into posters and open space in photo galleries. JR finds inspiration in people he meet during his travels.

Since 2004 he has worked on the project 28 mm, – Portrait of a generation – that gave to him the cover of the New York Times.

JR continues, unauthorized, to plan exhibitions with large pictures, in various cities suburbs like Rome, New York, Paris, but also in the Middle East, Brazil, Sierra Leone and Liberia . In 2008-2009, JR will develop this project in India and Asia.
