I’m not a professional photographer, I’m just an observer. I took this photo entitled ‘NO ONE Is BORN A SNOB’ to show the world that a child is born without any knowledge. The first thing he/she becomes aware of is not herself but others.
The reason I came up with this story is to let people know that sometimes we just need to change our perspective on the poor or the people that have different economic positions than most of us. Let’s be honest, some of us were told to avoid those poor, or some of us were taught that if we don’t study hard, we will end up like them. But until I reached a certain age of life, I began to realise that sometimes it’s their life and we have to respect that.
This story was actually dedicated to my best friend who has been looked down for years by others because of different levels of wealth and prosperity. So I hope this photo can change people’s perspective of them.
