PORTRAIT OF A GENERATION

After a first illegal exhibition on the walls of the Cité des Bosquets, JR settles in the heart of this neighborhood and the neighboring projects of La Forestière, in Clichy-sous-Bois, where the 2005 riots started in the French suburbs. The first portraits are displayed on the walls of the last popular neighborhoods of the capital, in Eastern Paris. These images challenge the passers-by, in the sense that they question the social and media representation of a generation can be seen only at the gates of Paris.
