Steve Rosenfield knows that in the digital age, it’s common for people to express their inner thoughts and opinions in a public space. From tweets that chastise cheating exes to shared articles on gay rights, nothing is off the table (aside from those few deep secrets kept carefully tucked away, far from the likes of Instagram and Facebook -- the horror!)
In a recent photography project called ‘What I Be,’ photographer Steve Rosenfield rivals the meaningless thoughts and opinions we see online everyday, by acquiring a host of subjects who divulge their darkest insecurities by writing them on their bodies or faces. The point is to pose a stark and controversial statement that their vulnerabilities are a part of them, but will not continue to define them. It also further proves how powerful and liberating the freedom of art and communication can be, especially when used to its maximum capabilities.
