    Brilliant portraits. Inspiring!

    Hmmm…The black and white photography is wonderful, just not sure why? It takes all kinds, this is true. What is the reasoning behind these juxtaposition? Why the stereo typical? Are these people actually what it says they are or actors and models?

  3. ?

    I don’t get it…

    Its called photography, art, you look at it and it does things to you or doesn’t, again its art.

    I honestly wouldn’t have known what this project even was about if it hadn’t been explained.

    I thought it made sense. It really did make me realize that we all are, biologically, the same. And yet we all live in a world of differences.

    The comprehension of dignity. This shoot is a modern documentation on par with Edward Curtis and Annie Leibowitz. Our story is a strange one…are we cliches or dreams realized? Is this what we’d hoped for as children or are we victims of social casting? Everyone is a story and these photographs are allegorical tributes indeed.
