The 'What I Be' project by Steve Rosenfield really uncovers the hard truths and low self-esteem hidden within so many people.

Steve came up with the idea for the project in September of 2010. Since then he has been on a journey for the right subjects and the right artful way to put this message in motion. The 'What I Be' project features a series of photos of everyday people with hurtful words -- they've heard before -- written on them. Phrases like "I was a man" written on the chest of a beautiful woman while the description of the photo reads "I am not my gender."
