InsideOut Project in East Harlem

My photos are now part of the international Inside Out Project, “a large-scale participatory art project that turns messages of individual identity into pieces of artistic work.” This is a project of the artist JR.

They are now in the community garden.

I hope that anyone passing by these portraits will recognize that the East Harlem community is made up of individuals with their own stories.

  1. JR is truly an inspiring artist. It’s so wonderful that your photos have joined his movement šŸ™‚ His speech on TED is the best I have ever heard in my life.
