Born in 1983 outside of Paris, JR has achieved worldwide recognition for his enormous photographs of everyday people that have been pasted on a range of surfaces all over the world. Among JR’s numerous awards and grants is his recent “Inside Out Project,” which has turned the walls of New York City into an open-air photo gallery. This past weekend, JR was busy over at the High Line in Chelsea pasting his huge portrait in tribute to the Lakota people, an original Native American tribe.
