Seguridad ("Security").
35mm B&W film.
Digitized with a Nikon D700 digital camera and a 60mm Nikon macro lens on a light table.

These portraits were taken under the international art project "INSIDE OUT Project", led by the french artist JR.

As the project's website states, "INSIDE OUT is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. Upload a portrait. Receive a poster. Paste it for the world to see."

I was invited to be part of an exhibition in a company's workplace, and the theme was anything related to it, as wide as that can be. I decided to take the opportunity and combine this invitation with the Inside Out project, and decided to focus on the security personnel who guard the access to the company's buildings.

These portraits are a little tribute to security guards, whose work is often overlooked, yet crucial for the work of others.

These posters were pasted in their workplace.
