Click here to enter the giveaway.
JR started his career as a teenage graffiti artist, using the streets of Paris as his canvas. His focus shifted to the medium of photography after he found a camera on the Paris Subway. He began documenting the act of graffiti in Paris before he travelled extensively throughout Europe taking his camera with him. The stimulus clicked, and today he’s well known for a medium that blends photography and graffiti, a title he has coined as photograffeur. While his true identity remains unknown, his large-scale photographic works are seen globally.
JR: Can Art Change The World? is an extensive and detailed overview of JR’s work and life. The full colour, hardcover book was written in close collaboration with JR, featuring photographs and previously unseen content of him and his collaborators. Featuring an essay by Nato Thompson, Chief Curator of Creative Time in New York, and an introduction by graphic artist Joseph Remnant, the title is published by Phaidon Books.
