This year JR won the TED prize wish, which meant he won $100,000 and something much bigger, a wish to change the world with the support of the TED community. JR’s work matches the creativity and innovative spirit of TED’s community, and his art inspires people to view the world differently – trying to change it for the better. He is a truly inspiring challenging controversial issues and traveling from place to place carrying the stories of the people he has photographed.

The wish was announced in the TED 2011 talk; to find out about it watch the clip below.
