TED Talks 2011 prize winner.

This is an artist who uses portrait photography to change perceptions in areas of conflict. This talk is beautiful and powerful, and if you enjoy or support art, it is a must watch.

A bystander viewing JR's art project talks to another and says,

"You’ve spent the last few hours trying to figure out what this project means. In that time you haven’t thought about what you are going to eat tomorrow. This is art.”
