Equipped with a mobile darkroom, some scaffolding and their imaginations, the fairy godmother of French cinema Agnès Varda and street artist JR embark on a journey through France, taking society’s pulse as they go.

From a former mining town to the docks of Le Havre, the duo celebrate a range of meaningful stories that they encounter, immortalising their memories in giant, building-sized portraits for whole communities to enjoy. Resolutely humanist, Faces Places reflects on the art of making (and the making of art) whilst documenting the budding friendship of two partners in crime.
