International French artist and TED Winner JR kicked off his quest to turn the world inside out in The Bronx, NY last Friday, erecting several murals in the Hunts Point section of the wily borough.

PHOTOS: JR Wants To Turn The World Inside Out

The installation took place on Saturday, Sunday and today with the completed the portraits filling the skyline and being visible from the Bruckner Expressway as well as throughout the Hunts Point neighborhoods.

JR’s “INSIDE OUT Project” is 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 their untold stories.

The Bronx project focuses on the women of the Hunts Point community and uses photographs to tell the story of The Bronx through a mother’s eyes. 

After the break, more images from the project.
