Here are some pictures sent to us by JR for his latest project in Tunisia. In his true fashion, the photographer/street artist took pictures of residents around the country. Calling the project “Artocracy,” the outdoor works consist of one of the first organized street art exhibits in an Arab country. Posting the works in symbolic areas correlated with the revolution, JR received a lot of backlash from people in the area, but has managed to capture some beautiful portraits with six Tunisian photographers- Sophia Barakat, Rania Dourai, Wissal Dargueche, Aziz Tnani, Hichem Driss amd Hela Ammar.
