Inside Out 11M: a large scale installation project by JR

Photographer and street artist JR has embarked on a new project to create a portrait of America, including immigrants and descendants of immigrants. The aim of Inside Out 11M is to demonstrate that there are stories behind the eleven million undocumented immigrants in the United States and that they are not just a number.

He hopes also to refresh the dialogue about immigration in the United States.

To accomplish this, he and his team have trucks with photo booths in them traveling across States to photograph people. The photographs are then printed out and pasted up at the various locations. This is part of JR’s global participatory Inside Out project.

Check out the project’s website, follow them on Facebook and Instagram, and keep an eye out for one of his trucks in your area.

If there isn’t a photo booth coming to your area, you can still participate by starting a group action where you live or submitting a self-portrait.
