JR is a genius.
He shoots the most amazingly simple black & white portraits of African faces that are full of emotion and character. And best of all is that he posts up massive prints of them on infrastructures around the towns and cities that these people live in.
The enormous images makes such a contrasted impact on the landscapes. It is beautiful.
He makes comments on people's lives in 3rd world situations and their human rights. He shot a project called "Woman", which underlines the dignity of women who are often the targets of conflicts.

I love his work.
