French street artist and photographer JR, uses photographs to create large street art installations. The best known works of the 28-year-old artist are arguably from his ‘Women are Heroes’ series, created when he visited a Rio de Janeiro favela – so dangerous it’s avoided even by police – to photograph mothers who lost innocent boys in gang violence. JR’s startling black-and-white eyes pasted on the simple favela homes generated an international media storm.

His latest work is in Hong Kong where Hong Kong citizens to express themselves in the artist’s itinerant photo booth. He’s travelling around the world with his Photo Booth truck, so maybe you can become part of a street art installation as well.
