Final Project in Progress

An outtake from my final project for Picture Story, which I am very much enjoying shooting despite the looming deadlines. My subject is dwarfism, looking at what life is like to be a little person in this culture. Little people are often portrayed in a derogatory fashion in mainstream movies and the media, and I wanted to show a different side, a more accurate side.

This picture is from a Little People of America (LPA) Christmas party in Kansas City. I was cracking up when the kids were choosing their gifts from Santa and Mrs. Claus--it's very serious business, as I recall from my own childhood!
