French street artist, JR, is bringing his large-scale Inside Out Project to New York City, starting April 22 and ending on May 10th 2013. The Inside Out Project consists of poster-sized self portraits of individuals taken in JR’s photo booth stationed in Times Square.
Some of the black and white instantly printed images will be displayed in Times Square but all portrait-takers will be encouraged to take their poster back to their home community to display publicly. The photo booth truck will make early visits to all four boroughs with the initial portraits of community members from NYC Hurricane Sandy-affected areas.
