About this title:

Synopsis: "

The definitive retrospective monograph on JR, the enigmatic Parisian artist-photographer, and his cross-media, participatory practice.

JR?s site-specific international projects have a wide audience spanning urban and youth cultures, and art and activism.

Made in close collaboration with JR, the book features previously unpublished work-inprogress photographs and behind-the-scenes documentation of his studios in Paris and New York.

In today?s climate of globalization, JR?s public interventions across the world are urgent acts that give voice and presence to both subject and viewer through the language of photography.

Includes all bodies of his work, collaborations with artists and institutions such as the New York City Ballet, a section devoted to artworks and exhibitions, and an illustrated chronology.

Features a specially commissioned graphic novel introduction by Joseph Remnant and 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 for his 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."
