A conversation with 2011 TED Prize Winner: JR

I love his work. His large scale images of faces, eyes, shifting the perspectives where they are displayed. Love also that he refers to himself as a “photograffeur” (graffeur is French for graffiti artist.) Very curious to hear his TED wish and even more curious to see how they handle his presentation during TED 2011 since he is anonymous.
