Photo’s from the opening night of the “Women Are Heroes” exhibit at Gallery Springmann.Varol. in Germany.  J.R the French photographer, activist and artist features the best of his third instalment in the 28 Millimetre series.

WOMEN ARE HEROES also supports the causes of peace and humanitarianism. JR’s project pays tribute to the scores of women who are dealing with the effects of war, poverty, violence, and oppression on a daily basis. He meets them in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, Phnom Penh, Delhi, and Kibera/Kenya and with his camera, he captures their faces in moments of emotion. JR’s works document the personal histories of the people he photographs and his works in interior spaces – photographs and collages on various media – are already well-established and respected throughout the international contemporary art world.
