Face2Face: the biggest illegal photo exhibition ever

Face2Face: the biggest illegal photo exhibition ever


One of my favourites, The Groundswell Blog, pointed me to another surprising blog, Thriving too, which is a real eye opener. There I found the stunning photography of JR Art, a new dimension in social photography. Stumble through his website, you won’t be disappointed.

One of the projects which JR Art has done is Face2Face.
In March 2007 he did the biggest illegal photo exhibition ever: eight Palestinian and Israeli cities, and the Security fence / Separation wall on both sides. He posted the huge portraits of Israelis and Palestinians face to face. Through this project, he showed that he can break the limits of possible.
With a 28 millimetres lens, the photos are taken very close to the person. He uses black and white to differentiate from the advertising colour aggression.
