If you are near the corner of South William Street and Chatham Row in Dublin any time this month then keep a look out for some large scale photographic posters. They are part of the 'Inside Out Project' which it is a global art movement, a " large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. Everyone is challenged to use black and white photographic portraits to discover, reveal and share the untold stories and images of people around the world. These digitally uploaded images are made into posters and sent back to the project's co-creators, for them to exhibit in their own communities."
This is a photo from the project in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and the photo below is from Athens. The Facebook page (link below) has some great photos and more information about this global project. In Dublin the group consists of photography students from different countries and backgrounds who have come together to use the project to highlight their differences and similarities. Organised by Pawel Boros, Ruta Prendiukaite, Ciaran Cummins, Andrew O'Toole, Lisa O'Malley, Deborah Hughes Mulcahy, Antonia Kenny and Piotr Kadziolka, it is great to see them getting involved with this worldwide project.
