Established in 1881, this hidden printing house in Paris has been frequented by such iconic artists as Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Chagall, and Giacometti, to name but a few. Joining the ranks is JR, who will be using the age-old printer for his latest series of prints, Action in Kesennuma. JR produced this work when he visited the devastated Tohoku region of Japan. This might very well be one of the few videos of the printing house, as JR shows the camera crew around the nostalgic printing machines. Watch the following video to see the whole process from beginning to the end.
