Powerful Portraits of Brave People Revealing Their Insecurities The What I Be Project by photographer Steve Rosenfield is an intriguing study into the human condition. The participants in Steve’s projects bare their souls writing their biggest insecurities on their bodies with markers and then letting Steve photograph them. Their messages tell of fears, self-doubts, and labels for society that stop most of us from living happier lives, but it also shows us the amazing bravery of the participants to share their innermost fears with the world. How many of us have the bravery to admit we were molested, feel ugly, think we are too thin or too fat, and to do it in such a daring public way? The images help us open up to our own inner fears and realize most of the time the worst part of the fear is our own self-loathing, not the real reactions of society.
