“Inside Out Project” In Spokane

Volunteer Jose Villa pastes a photograph of Isamu Jordan onto a wall during installation of "Maddness", a local exhibition of "Inside Out", to address the stigma of mental health, at Boots Bakery & Lounge, in Spokane, Wash., Sunday, April 13, 2014. "Inside Out" is the brainchild of artist JR, who invited other artists to create their own exhibits. The local exhibition was inspired by local artist Isamu Jordan, who committed suicide, September 5, 2013. 18 portraits, mostly taken by local photographer Jed Conklin, will be on indefinite display at the eatery.

I photographed the local installation of the “Inside Out Project”, which addresses the stigmas associated with mental illness, for the Inlander. Portraits are taken of people who are directly affected by mental illness, mental health professionals and people who support those who struggle through mental illness.
