For this project, JR visited Dallas, Saint Louis, and Washington DC. He photographed 245 people who represent a wide spectrum of views on guns in the United States. Capturing stories of doctors, politicians, school teachers, gun collectors, law enforcement officials, and activists, among others, JR created a stunning mural that is as intricate and complex as the subject itself.
JR's new book
JR - Paris
Foreword by Daniel Pennac
Published to coincide with JR's last action in Paris, on the façade, in autumn 2023, this book highlights the artist's monumental and participative works in Paris since 2009. This very large-format book gives pride of place to the images, and also features Daniel Pennac's original account.
