A French photographer and artist who goes by the name JR has spent the past year working on a series called the 'Inside Out Project.' The project features people's portraits being displayed all over public facades. Most recently, he has taken the project into a more spiritual location: the Au Pantheon church.

The creative used large-scale monochrome photos, which were taken in his Inside Out PhotoBooth truck earlier this year, to cover the church's exterior and interior. Commissioned by Centre des Monuments Nationaux, the church-based exhibition features the portraits on its floor, hallway walls, on its dome, and down its aisle between the pews.

The project turned the historical building into a contemporary work of art in a tasteful manner.
