To you, who at first glance appear different

by thebeautifulpeopleblog

It is not that  I find it easy to photograph people who at first glance are physically different from the  rest of us, ‘the norm’. I just find it impossible to ignore you when you are infront of me. I am like a child who cannot help but ‘look’ but because I was brough up to be polite and not to stare,  I am supposed to pass  you by and to pretend that you do not exist. Or I can choose to walk past you and throw a coin in your general direction and then carry on with my day without even a comment? Can I stop and talk to you, can I ask you some questions? Can I take your photograph please?

I would prefer to acknowledge you.
