It is always taboo

For my entire life, I have struggled with feeling like an outsider, as if I did not belong, and I was not at home. I still feel this way, mostly when I find myself in groups of people. Every time I bring this up, people tell me: “well, everyone feels that way, so don’t worry”. However, nobody talks about it. It feels like a taboo. So, for this project, I wanted to focus on the experiences others had with feeling like an outsider. I asked ten people to tell me about their experiences, which I turned into ten portraits with quotes.
These portraits showcase their emotions surrounding their experiences.
