Recently, French artist JR (whom Raffi Khatchadourian wrote about here) took over The New Yorker’s Instagram feed to document his new large-scale participatory art project, ‘Inside Out‘.
JR and his team opened a specially designed photo booth in New York’s Times Square, a location which attracts some 400,000 daily visitors. He invited passersby to take self-portraits and then he printed three-by-four-foot black-and-white versions of the resulting photo booth images and pasted them to the ground in various locations.
The goal of the project was to allow each portrait-taker to express through his or her face a message to the world.
