Inside Out Project Portraits

Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY

The Inside Out Project is a world wide participatory art project created by the artist JR, a recent recipient of the TED prize.  From the website describing the project:
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.
These are a couple of portraits on display in Red Hook, Brooklyn.  It's hard to say from just looking at these portraits exactly what these people's statements are.   I'm sure there is an interesting story behind each of these portraits.
