New York City

On March 2, 2011, at the TED Conference in Long Beach, California, JR called for the creation of a global art project – the Inside Out Project – inspired by his large‐format street “pastings.” The concept of the project is to give everyone the opportunity to share their portrait and a statement of what they stand for, with the world. Inside Out Project provides individuals and groups from all corners of the globe with a vehicle to make a statement. Anyone can participate, and is challenged to use photographic portraits to share the untold stories and images of people in their communities.

Part of the project, the Inside Out Photobooths bring the printers and the project to the street – enabling the public to participate instantly and free of charge. Tens of thousands of portraits have been printed at Photobooths located around the world in such locations as Centre Pompidou (Paris), Les Rencontres de la Photographie (Arles), various towns in Israel and Palestine, Emirati Expressions (Abu Dhabi), and Galerie Perrotin (Paris).

Now, the Inside Out Project gets bigger in NYC, USA. The latest add is up on a building at the corner of Berry St and South 5.
