I am so very excited to share this with you friends. I have been working on this project for quite some time now and it is oh so near and dear to my heart. Many who know me are aware that I live on the NW side of Grand Rapids and have myself become a “WestSider”. Bring a positive sense of pride to this community is a fiery passion of mine and I have the incredible honor to do this through my photography. In a small nutshell here is the project. JR won the 2011 TED Prize and started an international collaboration called The Inside Out Project. We are a small part of that. Our goal is to have over 200 portraits of fellow WestSiders and wheat paste 3×4.5 foot images all over the West Side.
There will be much more information to come. So keep looking! We will also be creating a Kickstarter soon to raise money for supplies. Keep and eye out for that too.
We will have a blog just for this project! Check out this link for more portraits.
