All the photos and editing by me.

Difference is often perceived as an anomaly, as an error to be corrected, an illness to be cured. Of course, being a member of the majority is reassuring, it is natural to be attracted by the protection of the group. However, why attack those that have other aspirations? When I turn the TV on, when I read some magazine or newspaper, when I simply look around me, I keep witnessing intolerance against difference. Lifestyle, skin color, sexuality, politics, religion, haircut... literally anything not in line with the majority is systematically attacked.

Let's imagine for a second a whole society, a whole world, full of similar persons, looking the same, thinking the same, loving and hating the same things... it would be a guaranty for a total absence of evolution. Each kid would receive the same education, generation after generation. Art, experimentation, any kind of individual expression would be extensively controlled and adjusted, to fit the mandatory "good" taste. I hope such perspective looks as frightening to you, as it looks to me. If so, please, express yourself: create! Play music, sing, write poetry or books or blogs, paint, draw, photograph the world or your fantasy, record movies, dance, sculpt, code software or video games... anything. Do it now, and share it around: helps this world staying alive.

I've noticed this piece in DarkTerrors group and I just stopped and stared. This picture is so mesmerizing and I can't help myself but stop and think how people and their view of the world around them is different and influence by different experience and way of life. it makes me feel hopeful towards the future.
