Changing the View of the World: Street Photographer and Artist JR

The following video shows the stunning and moving work of street photographer and artist JR, who has been awarded the 2011 TED Prize. Staying anonymous and under the radar of the authorities, he embeds into neighborhoods, favelas and villages around the world, photographing the people who live there and learning their stories – and then pasting his striking images onto massive local canvases: buildings, buses, roads and bridges. It’s people like him, who are really changing the way we look at our world!

Also be sure to watch the trailer for his actual project “Women are heroes” and read background information in this article at TED Blog.
