The Outings Project initiated by French artist Julien de Casabianca where people across the world are encouraged to photograph portraits in museums and paste them in the street. Julien de Casabianca was visiting the Louvre when an otherwise unremarkable portrait caught his eye.

“I saw a young woman in an abandoned painting in the corner, she was bored.” “I had a ‘Prince Charming’ impulse: I wanted to free her from the castle to give her a second life.”
