Face 2 Face by @jr: “In 2007, during the Face 2 Face project, JR and Marco organized the largest illegal photography exhibition ever. For this project, portraits of Israelis and Palestinians are pasted face to face, in large format on both sides of the wall and in several Palestinian and Israeli cities. In a very sensitive context, we have to be clear. We are in favor of a solution in which two countries, Israel and Palestine would live peacefully within safe and international recognized borders. We can be optimistic.” (at Soho, New York City)
A photo of JR during the first day pasting at the NYC Ballet. It has been an absolute blast documenting such a prolific and influential artist. The second night of the NYC Ballet Art Series featuring JR is this Friday, February 7th. The art exhibition is open to the public from 10 - 5 until February 8th.
I’m now part of the largest global art project in the world. And my face is pasted on Times Square. I encourage all of you to be part of the Inside Out Project. The truck will be at Times Square taking portraits until May 10th. #nofilter #insideoutnyc #jr @insideoutproject (at Times Square)
This is JR, one of my favorite artists and winner of the TED Prize in 2011 for being an exceptional individual. It was such an honor to meet him. This poster is part of his global art project, Inside Out, and was pasted on Times Square shortly after. Taking this portrait and pasting it on Times Square made me feel like a real New Yorker, as cheesy as that sounds, being part of something so big and leaving my mark. JR said to stand up for something that you believe in. When I moved to NY, I took a stand to pursue my dreams and my passions and to do something creative and meaningful with my life.JR believes that art can change the world.
