JR is the pseudonym of a French artist and photographer. Though very much a public figure and easily one of the world’s most recognizable artists today, JR’s elusive identity remains a mystery to all. The works presented for this collaboration are a selection of the artist’s different projects.
The legends say that JR began his career as a young graffiti artist tagging the urban landscapes of Paris, until he found a camera on the metro. The discovery would be a catalyst to JR’s newfound passion for photography and his unique style of street art – the fusion of photography and graffiti.
