Street Art with a Conscience.

Photographer/street artist JR transforms his photography into enormous posters and makes open space photo galleries out of our streets. You may have seen his work pasted onto the Tate Modern in London, or on a wall in your neighborhood if you're lucky.

But his thought process isn't limited to simply pasting big photos on walls, each photo tells a story and interacts with the human population around its' installation to provoke thought and hopefully, change. His work has recently led him to Africa to shoot women in post-conflict zones like Sierra-leone and Liberia, and is currently taking him to India and Asia to do the same.
