Strapped with a 28

French photographer-activist, JR has been on a mission round the worlds ghettos photographing portraits of young people 'armed' with a 28mm camera. His images are all full frame portraits, and once decided on favorites, turns the streets into open air galleries by blowing them up to 5x5m posters, and illegaly showering them on to the streets of paris. He's put together a booke with the help of vincent cassell titled '28mm'. The book consists of the 28 most meaninguful portraits from the series.
