Women Are Heroes

JR is one of the most interesting photographers I’ve ever happened upon. My homeslice, the artist Carlos “Mare 139″ Rodriguez put me on to him last year and I’ve been checking for him ever since. JR started taking interesting portraits of people the world over after finding a camera on the subway in his native Paris. This video is part of his Women Are Heroes project, which took him to a country dear to my heart: Sierra Leone.
