The Inside Out Project in London

French artist JR was recently in London with the Inside Out photobooth located at Somerset House

Over 1,700 portraits have been taken early this October. 
Portraits were being pasted every day outside the Somerset House, Another installation can also be spotted in Old Bailey, London. 

The photobooth truck enables the public to participate instantly and for free. You just enter the Photobooth, and their camera snaps your portrait within a minute. Then a black and white poster is printed and you take it to paste it on the street.

'Inspired by JR’s large‐format street "pastings", Inside Out  gives everyone the opportunity to share their portrait and make a statement for what they stand for. It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.
Each INSIDE OUT group action around the world is documented, archived and exhibited online. Over 120,000 people from more than 108 countries have participated.
The INSIDE OUT project has traveled from Ecuador to Nepal, from Mexico to Palestine, inspiring group actions on varied themes such as hope, diversity, gender-based violence, climate change...'
