Howard Munson: "While on a walk in San Francisco I came across a series of large poster-size black and white portraits of unknown persons on a wood barrier surrounding a storefront under construction. The person responsible for the work was A Global Participatory Art Project by JR, identified in small print at the bottom of the posters. I returned a few days later and saw that the participation continued with graffiti tags and torn areas. Several looked like they had been violently attacked. I wondered if this was expected and part of participatory art. I photographed them and became a participant myself in altering the images, a book artist approach. The web site of this group is www.insideoutproject.net."
