2011 TED Winner French street artist JR pastes enormous close up portraits of African women on any available wall space in their villages. He also printed them onto vinyl sheets then used to protect many leaking huts from rain, making murals seen from the sky. The portraits show the resilience and spirit of the women. 'I photograph anonymous women who are our daily heroes,' say JR, 'to make their story travel.'
