Inside the Outsider is a series of portraits by various established photographic artists, which explores the relationship between feelings of being an outsider and our own uniqueness. Our need for acceptance often overrides our need for individuality, and this series describes how we sublimate our true selves into someone we believe that society will reward, but our true self is still inside co-existing its subjugating replacement. The series also explores how these momentary emotions are forever captured in the static world of the photograph. The objectivity of the camera adds another layer of distance between the subject, the photograph, and the viewer. The camera captures light reflected into its lens without emotion, intent, or prejudice. The work also comments on the disconnection between the feeling of being an outsider and the physical distance between a person and other people. A person can feel like an outsider in a crowd just as easily as he or she could while physically isolated. Inside the Outsider was curated by Atlanta-based artist Brian Charles Steel.
