Exploring Faces

The photographer-activist, JR, converts his pictures into posters and transforms streets into universal open-air galleries. From Los Angeles to Berlin, he keeps his independence and illegal exhibits in the streets, which he considers to be his very own gallery. With a 28 millimetre lens, portraits of people pulling faces, huge posters and anonymity, JR changes some basic rules. As people are asked not to smile but to make faces for the portrait, they are not subjects, but actors. JR aim is to shift thinking habits and reframe our stereotypes and prejudices. They are inspiring and beautiful photos .
