See Me is a community-based photography project aiming to make a statement about the strength of our differences and the importance of hearing others’ stories in order to build empathy.
Through a large-scale wheatpaste installation on Main Street at my high school, the expressive, emotional, and captivating portraits of 100 members of the school community highlight an element of each subject’s identity. In this way, the viewer is able to “see them” for who they are--whether they are a student, faculty member, or part of the staff.
Inspired by JR's community "Inside Out Project"
