From the producer:
In October 2007, JR went to the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya to photograph and interview the women who became the first participants in the Women are Heroes project.
He returned there a few months later and covered a whole train with the eyes of the women photographed. The bottom half of their faces was pasted on corrugated sheets on the slope down from the tracks - the images of the eyes matching the faces have become some of JR's most famous. Over 2,000 square meters of rooftops were also covered with the eyes and faces of women from Kibera.
This lithograph is the only image from the project that includes both the rooftops and the train.
