Richard Andrew Sharum’s Epic Observe Dallas 2015

BY Catherine D. Anspon // 06.01.15

A most ambitious street-photography project — one that literally incorporates the street — is winding down in Dallas over the next two weeks. Richard Andrew Sharum‘s heroic #ObserveDallas2015 involves eight super-sized photojournalist images (up to 40 by 60 feet) staged across four building facades downtown (through June 7; one project remains on view into April 2016).

Of his series, the internationally exhibited Magnum Photos Masterclass Grant winner says, “I selected based on those core principles of empathy … I thought they represented an element of surprise shrouded in the space of ordinary.” Scroll through for a peek at Sharum’s bold public arts project. Then post your own street images under the #ObserveDallas2015 hashtag via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram through June 7; you’ll be entered to win an original print by the artist.
