Art when U least expect it...

This work is from a photographer that goes by JR. He spent last year photographing victimized women in Africa. He then made massive poster size prints which he plastered illegally in places you would least expect(like buildings,bridges, and beyond!) The idea says JR is to celebrate the strength and courage of women who live in places where they are often targets in wartime,and discriminated against in times of peace.When I saw his work I was simply amazed by the size and the meaning behind of what he does. His work is definitely relevant to the class, so enjoy, get inspired, and look up more of his work! (
