Around the World with @JR_Artist
From the streets of Cuba to North Korea, French artist JR (@jr_artist) takes his Instagram followers along for behind-the-scenes peeks at the latest installations of his massive, flyposted black-and-white photos.
Many of JR’s Instagram photos document his Inside Out Project. For that project, he uses images submitted digitally from people around the world. JR’s team then makes those photos into posters and sends the images back to their owners so they can exhibit them in their own communities, including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Parisian projects, Fort Greene Park in New York City, Sierra Leone, and Santorini, Greece.
