About JR

Creating large-scale public photography projects in cities around the world that address local political conflicts, the French artist JR has in recent years become one of the most visible contemporary artists on the international stage. 

JR started out as a graffiti tagger before transitioning into photography, taking pictures of other street artists at work. In 2004, however, after riots broke out in the banlieues, JR created his first major project, photographing the faces of the rioters and pasting up large prints of their faces around the city. This approach, which humanized a largely immigrants has become JR's trademark. After winning the 2011 TED prize, JR inverted his practice for the project Inside Out, inviting people around the globe to send him photographs of themselves that he would then print out at large scale and send back to them to mount publicly.
