You’ve probably seen JR‘s photographs before – you know, those massive pasted portraits on buildings, trains, garbage trucks and bridges. But this is one nice interview. JR grew up in the suburbs of Paris and began tagging and ‘exhibiting’ on the streets as a teen. He only started taking photographs when he found a camera on the subway. Now he’s put up a system that allows anyone to print and paste their own photos in their own neighborhoods, all for free. His work shows that we’re all human – and all equal. And that’s a good thing.
