Women Are Heroes

As an undercover photographer, JR transforms his pictures into posters and makes open space photo galleries out of our streets. An acute observer of our time, as comfortable in cozy neighborhoods as in urban ghettos, JR questions pedestrians with the exhibitions he mounts on their everyday commutes. The 3rd stage of JR’s 28 millimeters project – Women Are Heroes – led him to Africa in post-conflicting zones to shoot the women with who he wishes to share painful stories and to testify of their desire to live. This is absolutely remarkable and truly inspiring.
