    About The Work

    "Photograffeur" (part graffiti artist, part photographer) and "urban activist," artist JR uses his art to raise questions and change the world. For his project Women are Heroes, part of his broader 29 Millimetres project, JR used a wide-angle 28 mm lens to capture close-up photographs of women's faces. These enormous, intimate portraits were then displayed in public places to celebrate the strength and courage of women.

    This lithograph shows three of the Women photographs hung in Kibera, a slum in Nairobi, Kenya. The ten photographs in Kibera cover 2,000 square feet and are visible from Google Earth and the city's train tracks.

    Proceeds from the sale of this work will benefit JR's Inside Out, a large-scale participatory art project. Learn more about Inside Out here.
