Can Art Change the World? JR's Ted Prize Video 4. JR (French pronunciation: ; born 22 February 1983) is the pseudonym of a French photographer and street artist whose identity is unconfirmed. Describing himself as a photograffeur, he flyposts large black-and-white photographic images in public locations, in a manner similar to the appropriation of the built environment by the graffiti artist.
