French artist JR’s tells the story of the Belle de Mai’s creative neighborhood in giant pictures. For this project JR asked local residents to open up their family photo albums: blown-up and re-cropped versions of these photographs – old and new – were pasted up on the walls of the entire neighborhood, bringing its history to life in an spectacular and poignant fashion.
