Global Photography Project Reveals Greatest Insecurities

A social experiment that opens the window of its subjects’ souls while shining a light upon society’s prejudices. Photographer Steve Rosenfield quit his nine-to-five life over a decade ago and spent four years traveling the world in search of that “something.” After four years he returned and asked his friend to display her greatest insecurity in writing on her body. She did. As did thousands of others, scrawling statements of frustrated profundity such as the I-am-not-my-turban Sikh who writes “Terrorist” across his forehead or the I-am-not-my-therapy young lady who writes “OCD” across hers.
