On the Bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, a small part of the Inside Out Project
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
Just a small part of a larger global art endeavor called the “Inside Out Project” sponsored by “TED” (Technology Entertainment and Design) with Parisian Artist/Photographer known only as “JR” leading the way. They have asked photographers from all over the world to come together and post black and white portraits in their towns, cities and neighborhoods. JR and his team have been displaying images of people from all walks of life for years bringing awareness to the world that we all are “one” via this edgy urban art project.
This is my contribution to the IOP, which was taken down to the bottom to the Gulf of Mexico by Bryan Clark and his wife Anna, local divers here in Pensacola, Florida. It was place on the USS Oriskany Aircraft Carrier which was sent to rest in over 200 ft of water on May 17 2006. Locals call it “The Great Carrier Reef” and I am proud to say it is now home to my photography.
