Starting October 3rd until 14th November, a special artistic manifest goes building-high in London’s Soho.
It’s about the photographic work of JR, a young French street photographer/artist who’s known for his unconventional exhibitions across the world. (in 2007 he organized with Marco “Face 2 face” – the world’s largest illegal photo exhibition involving Israeli an and Palestinian cities and the wall of separation where huge posters with pictures of Israelis and Palestinian face to face were installed).
Soho’s Lazarides Galleries are responsible for this initiative. JR’s 28 Millimeters: Women, photos taken by JR in Rio de Janeiro. Some images have a toll free number beneath where you can hear the photographed woman’s story. It’s a great initiative that I hope will bring more awareness on the delicate matters of the world! (via)
