rio de janeiro: jr

one of our fav shnappers is the inimitable jr. his projects + exhibitions are global, spectacular and have a compelling human edge. his latest show, dubbed 28 milímetros - mulheres jr, launched some time ago at rio's casa frança-brasil [on until jun 21]. during a two week stay in 2008 in morro da providência, one of the city's favelas, jr photographed local women and covered many of the buildings there with their images. location: rua visconde de itaboraí 78 [centro]. © jr / photos: casa frança-brasil exterior [top] and exhibition image [bottom]
