To you, who at first glance appear different
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?
