In the spirit of the Rio Olympics: French art photographer JR has placed breathtaking artwork through out Rio de Janeiro and has captivated the hearts of everyone around the world.

“The idea is to evoke these athletes who train all over the world with the dream of making it to the Olympics. Sometimes they fall just short, like Mohamed (the Sudanese high jumper), who was injured just before coming to Rio,” JR said.
