To show that beyond their differences, Palestinians and Israeli are similar enough to understand each other, JR – with his camera – and Marco – with his pen – decided to launch (without authorisation) the biggest street art exhibition ever.
Men and Women, Israelis and Palestinians, agreed to cry, laugh, shout, and make faces in front of JR’s lens. Their portraits were posted face-to-face, in huge formats, on both sides of the security fence / separation barrier and in several cities.
A necessary demonstration, through images, that art and laughter can challenge stereotypes.
The book Face2Face is about this extravagant adventure.
It gathers 41 portraits, testimonies, photos of the portraits posted on the walls, and pictures taken on the spot.
