JR's latest projects Women are Heroes is done with the heart; A heart bigger than his photographs. Some of my favorite pieces are from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Click on the map of Brazil to see the portraits and the street photos.
The Project (text from the Women website):
The Women project wants to underline their pivotal role and to highlight their dignity by shooting them in their daily lives and posting them on the walls of their country.
On the other hand, by posting the same images of these women in Western countries, the project allows everyone to feel concerned by their condition and connects, through art, the two different worlds.
