Unveiled during the 2016 Olympic Games, GIANTS shows athletes executing a caracteristic gesture from their sport. The series was presented as monumental photographic installations on scafoldings around Rio's buildings.

As always, JR choose to honor not famous athletes, but those who train relentlessly in the hope of a selection for the Games.

This specific installation pays homage to Mohamed Younes Idriss, a sudanese high jumper who had to renounce to his selection to the 2016 Games because of an injury.
