JR Favellas





I first saw JR's photography a few years back when he was taking really dynamic photos of graffiti writers. Since then he's been doing HUGE things like the Israel/Palestine exchange and the Tate Modern in London to name a few.

His latest project has him doing his photo tiles in Brazil's favela (slums). Pretty damn inspiring.

It's cool how he gives back to the people he uses in his photos instead of just exploiting them.
