WOMEN ARE HEROES | BRAZIL

Inside Out Project - Street artist JR 

Moro de Providencia is a place of which the name has become synonymous for violence in Rio de Janeiro. However the reason this favela (shantytown) located in the center of Rio appeared on television screens in August 2008 wasn’t the regular scenes of clashes between drug dealers and the police but to present the art exhibition Women. In order to pay tribute to those who play an essential role in society but who are the primary victims of war , crime, rape and political or religious fanaticism, JR pasted huge photos of the faces and eyes of local women all over the outside of the favela, suddenly giving a female gaze to both the hill and the favela.
