“I am not my ethnicity” — Valerie Christina

A series that makes you think about people and life, participants expose their fears, emotions and insecurities to the camera. What I Be project by photographer Steve Rosenfield works on the tag line of “Building Security Through Insecurity.” For the project, Steve asked people to display their insecurities. Additionally, each participant was asked to complete the sentence “I am not my…”

The photographs have quite an impact. As the photographer says, the idea was to spread awareness on the issues people have to face. They may learn to live with it, yet they have to battle these things everyday. The point is to have people put themselves in the shoes of an individual before stereotyping and rushing to judgments and opinions.
