These People Refuse to Be Defined by Their Biggest Struggles
Steve Rosenfield is used to meeting brave people.
The photographer from Boston, Mass., encounters them every day while he builds a project called, “What I Be,” where subjects put their biggest insecurities in front of Rosenfield’s lens. Some are fighting disease, and some are living with disabilities. Some are going through life with a mental illness, and some are recovering from past traumas. Some are young, and some are old.
But all of these people won’t stand for being labeled by their challenges.
“I just wish we could all understand others better,” Rosenfield, 39, told The Mighty in an email, “and be more kind to each other.”
