Sharing innovation to inspire action

Connecting People with Photography

In 2018 JR his team spent a month roaming New York City, parking their trailer truck and taking photos of passersby who wished to participate. Each was photographed in front of a green screen then the images were collaged into a NYC setting featuring architectural landmarks. More than 1,000 people were photographed for a mural, The Chronicles of New York City. Participants chose how they wanted to be represented and were asked to share their stories, which are now on a free app. Mexican painter Diego Rivera was the inspiration. Now showing at the Brooklyn Museum.
