For his Unframed Project where he manipulates the context of archival images, photographer JR presents a look at his “I Am a Man” mural in Washington, D.C. In this piece, the French activist brings to life a photo of Ernest Withers during the 1968 Memphis sanitation workers strike and pasted it up on the same corner in Washington where riots exploded following the assassination of Martin Luther King.
