Face 2 Face Favorite 



Mar 4 2007

In 2007, anonymous French photographer JR embarked on the Face2Face project - the largest unauthorized photo exhibition ever conceived. JR and his collaborator Marco engaged Israelis and Palestinians employed in the same profession to be photographed making funny faces. They then enlarged the photos to grand proportions and wheat pasted juxtaposed portraits onto both sides of the security Separation Wall and in surrounding cities.

The artist's intention was to draw attention to the shared humanity and fundamental similarities between Israelis and Palestinians despite the frequent media depictions of violence between the two sides.
