UnDifferent – Mona

*I discussed the premise for this whole project in a previous post.

Each of the subjects that I have made pictures of in the creation of this series will each share 3 things that they consider to be unique and distinct to their person. Once again, the point of the exercise is to allow the subjects to assert their individuality, yet find a commonality with other people at the same time.

1 — Ramona strikes me as the quiet and introspective type, someone who observes the world first before engaging it. I suppose it is in her observations of maniacal drivers that she has developed a fear for crossing a busy street; actually waiting for a rare lull in the traffic before making her way over to the other side.


2 — Mona, as she prefers to be called, has an aura of kindness about her that permeates through her eyes. I believe it is this compassion that makes it difficult for her not to avert her gaze when she is confronted with food, especially meat, that still closely resembles the animal from which it was prepared from. I gather she won’t be attending too many fiestas as lechon (roasted pig) is a can’t-miss staple at these occasions.


3 — Quiet and kind does not belie her determination and decisiveness though as she does not only juggle her extracurricular duties with school work, but has definitively classified ketchup as a condiment that she will never use.

Up next, Yang
