With a desire to make his mark on public space and society, JR began his career as a teenage graffiti artist. He soon started to document his actions and those of other graffiti artists with photographs, eventually pasting photocopies of these to outdoor walls. These days, he is known for urban actions in which he takes photos of people and pastes them throughout the city covering buildings, walls, stairs, ships, train cars, and other objects in order to acknowledge their existence. Richly illustrated with photos and quotes, this book offers background on JR and his previous projects, but its focus is an extensive, year-long project at multiple locations in Japan.
