Art has the power to change the way we view the world. It has the ability to bring us together and reflect our humanity on a grand scale. With his global art project, artist and TED Prize winner JR is turning the world inside out, in a big way. He’s using photography as a vehicle for change by, quite literally, putting a face to an issue. His team travels the world taking portraits of people and printing them on large-scale paper to then post in public spaces. His “Inside Out” public art project works with communities online and around the world to print and display their photos and stories along the streets where they live. His soaring installations shine a light on the unsung and give everyone the dignity they deserve.
