The Inside Out Project is a participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. In 2011, the French artist JR started this innovative project in order to increase community awareness. The Inside Out Project asks anyone to contribute a black and white photograph of themselves, uploaded to the project website, that reveals something about their personal story and journey. The images are then printed in poster size and returned back to their owners to be pasted up somewhere in their city or area.
The Project just started in NYC last week. People are invited to take their self-portraits in a specially designed photo booth stationed in Times Square.
And here are more pictures from other places, Japan, Mexico, USA, Canada, Cyprus, Brazil, etc. What an AMAZING project! I really hope to participate in the Inside Out Project one day !!
