*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.
For the second set of UnDifferent portraits, I have decided to shift the voice of the narrative over to the subjects themselves. This would allow me to share with you the experience of getting to know each subject yourself. I will only make necessary edits for the purpose of clarity.
1 — At some point in people’s lives, they become idealists. Some lose their idealism, while others would have to reckon with their idealism for the rest of their lives. I’m one of the scarce latter.
2 — I get occasional bouts of Weltschmerz. (an all-encompassing sadness about life: sadness felt at the imperfect state of the world, especially at the behavior of human beings.) Whenever I do, I feel like the scum of the earth.
3 — I am a confused mix of the old, conservative, traditional world and the advanced, revolutionary, modern world. Emphasis is apt on the word ‘mix’, because I am truly stuck between the two.
Up next, Kayna…
