Meet 2011 TED winner JR

Hopefully many of you know about TED talks. If not, you have some serious video watching to do. This years winner is a French photographer named JR.

JR broke barriers with his enlightening portraits of rival citizens shown in a humorous and often reassuring way, plastering the billboard sized images in the most affected and torn apart areas around the world. Starting the project in his native France, he quickly realized the power the images had. After this discovery, his team decided to move in to the middle east despite risk of arrest, brutality, or even death. Check out the video below to see JR’s amazing journey.
