Shades of...

We are who we are or who we choose to become

Why does society require us to wear badges that indicate our sexuality, our culture, our race or religion
Man, Woman, Gay, Lesbian, Transsexual, Bi-sexual, Queer, Black, White, Christian, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim...

I find it frustrating that we seem to want to categorise ourselves rather than just accept who or what we are and accept this in others too.

Perhaps these pictures are clichéd but I really wanted to create a series of portraits that demonstrated an affection and love for people regardless of their sexual orientation, their religious persuasion or the colour of their skin, after all, we are all painted by the colourful and exciting shades of humanity.
