The Inside Out Project is a global art exhibit designed to equalize people of different races and nationalities around the world. The project involves taking close up portraits of men, women and children in playful and often silly moments of interaction with the camera. The portraits are then blown up to larger than life sized prints and pasted to the sides of buildings, trains, roofs of houses and bridges where they can be seen clearly from far away. The affect being that the landscape of the architecture viewed becomes human and the viewer is encouraged to look deeply into the eyes and face of that person and possibly ponder for a moment the larger connection of all humanity.
This weekend on Saturday and Sunday, September 21 & 22 the folks at Inside Out Austin will be pasting up portraits all over our fine city. Keep your eyes peeled, its going to be great! I am so excited to be a part of this project. Here are a few of my portraits:
