In order to fully appreciate the scale and implications of this global collaborative art project, first, please take a moment to know more about JR, his past work and where JR is going with InsideOut. (The video is 24 minutes long and it is definitely worth it, but if you only have 5 minutes look here!)
The photo of Robert is a black and white cropped version of Robert's Grinnell Track and Field team photo. It is probably taken in early 2010, because see how strong his neck looks? Even when Robert's pearly white teeth are beaming at us ina smile, we can still see love in his eyes. I cannot forget Robert.
It doesn't end here...
Now what? If you watched the video already, you learn that JR's intent is to post faces of people outdoors throughout the world. Everyone participating in JR's InsideOut Project has committed to post the poster photo that they submitted somewhere outdoors.
