Gather pick — The “What I Be” project

The “What I Be” project is a social experiment turned global movement about honesty and empowerment. In today’s society, we are often told to look or act a certain way. If we differ from these “standards,” we can be judged, ridiculed, bullied and sometimes even killed. Photographer Steve Rosenfield started this project in the hopes of helping everyone accept diversity with an open mind and heart, and to empower those who feel they suffer for something they may see as a flaw.

This amazing photo journey gives us insight into the face that we all have insecurities. And yep, that’s true of even the perfect “celebrities” amongst us (notice any familiar yoga faces in the gallery?).
