How to Make a Difference with Photography: Post Your Portrait!

Created with Sketch.

The Banksy of the photo world wants you to be in his next project!

2011’s TED Prize winner JR is known for combating social inequalities with photography. He’s plastered massive 20 foot tall portraits from Paris to Brazil, Nairobi, and Cambodia.

Inside Out is a photo project that asks anyone to upload their portrait with their personal story.

After uploading, your photo’s then mailed to you as a poster that you can post in public*.

The goal? To give individuals a voice and unveil the untold stories of people around the world. Awareness and mutual respect are the aim!

8,000 photographers from everywhere have already posted their own portraits and awesome/inspiring/fascinating stories which you can browse in the online gallery.

*No defacing necessary. Prop it in a window or tie it to a fence, bench or balcony.

Instagram crush alert! @Paperboyo combines stunningly precise papercraft cut-outs with monuments and landmarks from all over the globe for amazing photographs that never cease to make us marvel (and occasionally chuckle too).

Thankfully, we don’t have to stare at our phones hoping for a new post. Rich McCor (the clever snapper behind @paperboyo) recently released a book of his fantastic photos and behind the scenes peeks at his process.

We still couldn’t get enough Rich in our lives, so we talked to him about his inspiration, his favorite gear and much more. Turns out the dude is just as delightful as his photos!
