Blow Up is a new short documentary by NOWNESS contributor Matt Black focussing on the TED Prize winning photographer JR, who grew up in the suburbs of Paris exhibiting his work in what he called “Street Exhibitions”. His massive iconic images can now be found hand-pasted “to crumbling buildings, trains, garbage trucks and bridges, whimsically reclaiming the urban landscape,” as well as some more traditional spaces like Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Los Angeles MoCA.
