JR is the moniker for the French photographer and street artist born in 1983 in Paris. He employs a unique technique where he essentially installs photography onto streetscapes and public spaces. He has also displayed his work on rooftops and on public transportation vehicles. He has described himself as a photograffeur, a play on words combining “photographer” and “graffeur,” the French word for graffiti artist. He believes the accessibility of the street makes it the largest art gallery in the world.
