As part of his global project Inside Out, French street artist and TED Prize winner JR took to the streets of New York to create photo installations of the general public. Placing a photo booth truck in the tourist-filled hub of Time Square, JR brought together people of different demographics and races for a series of black-and-white images embellished with JR’s signature dotted background. The series of portraits showcase the personalities living in neighborhoods affected by Hurricane Sandy and will be replaced by local faces starting next week. This large-scale art project has seen participation across the globe, highlighting the divergent experiences of those in different cultures and from different backgrounds to showcase the similarities and common experiences. For more on JR’s larger-than-life endeavors, heading over to the Inside Out website, and keep an eye out for the photo booth truck to hit a city near you.
