JR and Jose Parla

JR has always been one of my favorite artists as soon as I found about him in the portrait drawing class I took back at MiraCosta College. They were a great team to put together a project such as this. Their project showed the power of not only photography but art itself. It allows us to communicate with people no matter if we speak different languages, art transcends language. It conveys messages that words sometimes can’t. This short film is something I would definitely share with some other people that enjoy art, photography and just people. This film was about the people. We all struggle during our day to day lives. It is great to see ordinary people commemorated for just being people. Wrinkles in the City is a true example of why I love art and photography. It’s all about connecting with people.
