BRASIL///THE HILLS HAVE EYES: JR IN THE FAVELAS OF RIO
French photographer/street artist JR, best known for his technique of photographing inhabitants of an area & pasting the resulting imagery up on grand scale around the community, has taken to the favelas of RIO DE JANEIRO in a grand project to honor the female residents of one of the world’s biggest slums in a hillside installation called “28 Millimetres: Women”. Following in the footsteps of his recent large-scale installation in Spain, JR has truly outdone himself with this massive paste up, the scope of which is simply stunning. HAVE A LOOK:
