i see fire
inside the mountain

i see fire
burning the trees

i see fire
hollowing souls

i see fire
blood in the breeze

and i hope that you’ll remember me

What I Be Project, Steve Rosenfield

Photographer Steve Rosenfield recently asked subjects far and wide to complete the following statement: "I am not my ___ ". He prompted individuals to fill in the blank with their deepest and darkest insecurities, moving people to bring issues regarding body image, substance abuse, mental illness, race and sexuality to the forefront. The results of the social experiment of sorts is a photography series titled the What I Be Project, an intimate examination of the anxieties and inhibitions that plague men and women of all ages. 

The “What I Be Project” is all about honesty.

In today’s society, we are told to look or act a certain way. If we differ from these “standards,” we are often judged, ridiculed, and sometimes even killed over them.

By stating “I am not my_____,” people are claiming that they do in fact struggle with these issues, but it does not define who they are as a person. It is not aimed for people to say “You’re not fat,” or “You don’t have love handles.” It is to spread awareness on what people go through due to society’s paved roads. These are serious issues that some of us can live with, but most battle on a day to day basis. 

  1. I am not my shame.
  2. I am not my gender.
  3. I am not my image.
  4. I am not my turban.
  5. I am not my weakness.
  6. I am not my amputation.
  7. I am not my bi-polar disorder.
  8. I am not my adoption.
  9. I am not my number.
  10. I am not my vision.
