WHO I AM
A vision by Sunny Paulk featuring a collective of female artists in celebration of National Women's History Month.
Assumptions are usually misguided, especially assumptions we make about other people. We assume to know who someone is based on their race, sex, sexual orientation, religion or lack of religion, hair, clothing, dialect, neighborhood or lack of neighborhood, physical or mental disability, as well as many other perceptions, when that is not what defines them. We do not seek to know the real person underneath the exterior, especially if they don’t look or sound like we do. But we usually have more in common with each other than we have differences. When we seek out other people and listen to their stories, we actually learn more about ourselves, and only learn and grow as a result.
WHO I AM is about real people and their real stories; people that demand to be seen, and the daily challenge that presents. It’s about reconciling with who the world assumes they are, while still being strong enough to be their true self. It’s about stepping back and listening to what is unspoken and often hidden from the rest of the world. It’s about who they are.
