Women Are Heroes

A post by the ever inspiring Christine Mason Miller led me to the trailer for the Women Are Heroes project.  French photographer JR traveled to Kenya, South-Sudan, Sierra-Leone, Liberia and shot women who had undergone extreme tragedies.  JR asked them “to testify of their force, their courage and their noble struggle: first to live, then to exist…he found that there was still a lot of life in them when he asked them to make faces for the camera.”
