This series represents people labeled and identified to be outside of Western societal norms because of their differences to the aesthetic or political ideal. This series investigates our culture’s perception of “the other and otherness” and how prescribed labels determine society’s behavior toward a social group because of race, gender, sex, class, and religion. Challenging the dominant group’s value and beliefs creates marginalization and exclusion. Viewers are challenged to embrace the diversity of others.
