I just read a thought provoking piece by Ray Sikorski in yesterday’s Christian Science Monitor, A legless artist documents the world in 32,000 stares.
The essay describes the journey of Kevin Connolley, who was born without legs, through 15 countries, documenting the stares he got from people all over the world.
Some of his photos are available at TheRollingExhibition.com – the photos, and the article lead me to believe that we can be pretty similar in our response to “difference.”
And that we not only smile, but also stare in the same language…
