Monday heroes: JR and Agnès Varda

Last week I saw a beautiful French documentary on Dutch television: Visages Villages. 

The film follows the old nouvelle vague photographer Agnès Varda and the young street art photographer JR on a tour around France.

They meet and photograph people, and stick huge, beautiful portraits of them on the walls of their hometowns.

In the meantime they talk and quarrel about their work and life. It is a very touching, funny and uplifting movie. A must-see.


JR is also known for the photo-project he did with the wall between Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Agnès Varda died earlier this year at 90 years of age.
