Perched on scaffolding, gigantic athletes leaped over abandoned buildings and swan-dived into the ocean. And, while his Giants were on show, the "Inside/Out" photo booth was zapping out supersized prints of enthusiastic games-goers.

This volume explores the history of JR's work in Brazil, beginning in 2008 with his work in Rio's favelas and continuing today at the Casa Amarela, a culture and education center for kids. Focusing particularly on the Giants series, the book offers insights into how the artist transforms places and spaces by focusing on the daily lives of their inhabitants.
