The prolific and daring photographer/street artist JR has just been announced as the winner of the 2011 TED Prize, joining prestigious alumnus such as Bill Clinton and Bono. The TED Prize is awarded annually to an exceptional individual making a change in the world. Along with the $100,000 cash prize, the winner will unveil their “One Wish to Change the World” at the coming TED conference where the community will work on collaborative initiatives focusing on making the wish a reality. AM congratulates JR and look forward to his hearing about his “wish.”
Also, to followup on some pics that we first showed you here of JR’s project “The Wrinkles of the City”, there are now additional pics after the jump as we get closer to the opening on the 24th of the Shanghai Biennale.
