Inside Out

Posted on May 13, 2015

On March 2, 2011, JR won the TED prize at the TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and called for the creation of a global participatory art project with the potential to change the world. This project is called INSIDE OUT.

Annie Ward Love, a senior at Freeman High School in Richmond, VA, helped bring INSIDE OUT to her high school cafeteria where the diverse student body often remains segregated. Students, teachers, and staff galvanized around the idea, hoping that the portraits will help everyone to truly see each other.

I know that my friends, the Whorleys, look like models assembled to act like a family for a magazine shoot. But they are real. They really do look and love this beautifully.

How to do show young people what mediation is? Here’s a video I made for St. Stephen’s youth program that demonstrates in a humorous way the experience of meditation–recognizing the storm inside us and then, hopefully, watching it pass.

There is a reason why Maymont is everyone’s favorite place in Richmond to take portraits–beautiful gardens, fish-filled ponds, elegant stonework and architecture, and 100 acres of trees.
