JR Solo Show in ParisJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 29 Sep 2009
JR has been working on this Women project for years, telling the stories of women in impoverished and dangerous places, most notably the favelas in Rio de Janeiro and in Kibera, Kenya.
At times beautiful and other times heart wrenching, but always inspiring. This exhibit will take the faces of the world’s women and display them in JR’s typical over-sized fashion for an undeniably powerful impact.
