Working anonymously, pasting his giant images on buildings, trains, bridges, the often-guerrilla artist JR forces us to see each other. Traveling to distant, often dangerous places — the slums of Kenya, the favelas of Brazil — he befriends inhabitants and recruits them as models and collaborators. With a 28mm wide-angle lens, the resulting portraits are unguarded, funny, soulful, real, that capture the sprits of individuals who normally go unseen.
