The imaginative street art of JR never ceases to amaze me. In his latest work from the UNFRAMED series, JR returns to his native France to the city of La Belle de Mai in Marseille. Members of the community gave the artist photographs from their family photo albums. Those photographs got the JR treatment and appeared all over the city in breathtaking scale. The work as JR says on his website aims to “create a monumental artwork on the walls of the neighborhood and transform these personal memories into part of the collective history of La Belle de Mai.”
