'“Women are Heroes" project, a collaboration between JR and Médecins Sans Frontières.

Taking his trusty 28 millimeter lens, for the last year JR has been traveling to such countries as Sierra Leone, Liberia, Southern Sudan and Kenya, documenting the lives of a group of incredibly courageous women.

Now, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, the full documentation of the Women Are Heroes project is being launched on the web. And not surprisingly, the work is absolutely breathtaking.

This past Saturday, the faces of eight women were placed on walls across Brussels, where they will remain for a month.'
It's so easy to bitch... So easy. But when you compare your daily troubles with those of these women, women who can still bring themselves to put on smiles and funny faces, who are you to piss and moan?
