About this title

Synopsis:

The first major and in-depth retrospective monograph on JR, the enigmatic and anonymous Parisian photographer/street artist/activist behind some of the world's most provocative large-scale public photography projects.

Created in close collaboration with JR, this book includes all bodies of his work, his collaborations with other artists and institutions such as the New York Ballet and previously unpublished behind-the-scenes documentation of his studios in Paris and New York, where he and his creative collaborators live and work.

Introducing JR 's story is a specially commissioned graphic novel by comic artist Joseph Remnant, which charts his rise from graffiti roots and his decision to become a full-time artist.

Features a survey essay by Nato Thompson, Chief Curator of Creative Time, New York.

About the Author:

JR first garnered international attention at age 27 when he won the TED Prize in 2011, which raised the question, 'Could art change the world?', to which his response was the Inside Out Project, which has since drawn nearly 200,000 participants internationally. His in-your-face black-and-white close-up portraits — pasted on buildings and streets, trains, buildings and monuments — allow locals to have presence and show ownership of their surroundings. He has worked across the globe - in France, the UK, USA, China, Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, Kenya, India and Cambodia amongst many more. His work has been exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Tate Modern, London; the Rencontres d'Arles; and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art.
