Identity! Exploring Our Humanity.
This is a photography exhibition project that seeks to explore some of the many layers and complexities around what it means to be human in today's world. How we connect with each other and how we're more alike than we might think. The final project will likely provoke, stimulate and engage its audience.
We are seeking people who would like to be part of this exciting endeavor by allowing themselves to be profiled for the project through photography and videotape. Applicants selected to participate will be asked to sign a media release form.
Preferred Method of Communication
How do you define or describe yourself? If I couldn't see you, what would
you want me to see and know?
Have you experienced a time when someone misunderstood or labeled you based
on something like your age, race, gender, sexual orientation, appearance,
religion or some other issue that was simply part of who you are? If yes, please describe your experience.
Thinking about the situation in the previous question, what would you want
others to know about you, that they might not see if they don't take time to
get to know you?
Please tell a story about a pivotal or defining moment or time when you realized that you had fully accepted yourself and that society's view of you no longer had any impact on your beliefs or outlook.
If you could go back in time, what would you like to tell your younger self about the person you are today?
What impact do you hope this project will have on individuals who attend the exhibit? What led you to apply to participate?
What assumptions have you made about particular categories of people (race,
gender, class, age, religion, sexual orientation, etc.) that you later
learned were incorrect? How did these assumptions affect you before and
after you let them go?
Is there anything else you would like to share that you believe is important for us to know about you and/or your desire to participate in this project?
