Connecting People with Photography
In 2018 JR his team spent a month roaming New York City, parking their trailer truck and taking photos of passersby who wished to participate. Each was photographed in front of a green screen then the images were collaged into a NYC setting featuring architectural landmarks. More than 1,000 people were photographed for a mural, The Chronicles of New York City. Participants chose how they wanted to be represented and were asked to share their stories, which are now on a free app. Mexican painter Diego Rivera was the inspiration. Now showing at the Brooklyn Museum.

The drug forces cancer cells to divide quickly, making even chemo-resistant cancers susceptible to treatment. Multiplying faster than normal produces errors within the cancer cells and means chemotherapy is more likely to kill them.  http://www.inkl.com/news/new-drug-may-prove-key-to-overcoming-aggressive-breast-cancer?
