Women Of The World

French artist J.R. is continuing with his installations themed ’28 Millimeter:Woman’ which is a statement of the unseen and unempowerment of women in desolate lands. The objective of the entire project is to draw the world’s attention to the often overlooked lives of women in these harsh habitats. The project starts off with him lugging his camera around and taking pictures of the local village’s women and reproducing the films into a massive scale. His first installments done in Kibera, Kenya were so immense in size, you could locate it on Google Earth. Here are some pictures of the Kenyan project:


As you can see here, the whole project is an undescribable beauty through the eyes of Google Earth:


J.R.’s already hit up his second location, which is my family’s homeland — Cambodia. Right in the heart of the country’s capital, Phnom Penh.



The next stop is New Delhi, India and then he’ll roll out to Paris, France in time for the Tour De France event which I’m sure will get him a lot of press and media attention.

    Everytime I come back to this…that angry lady with her finger pointed..always reminds me of my mother. That hard face, downward eyebrows..that anger and frustration that they instill in you seems to exist in every old school Khmer folks. Especially Khmer mothers,…that picture really hits close to home.
