“Judged” A work in progress

imageJudge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged:  Matthew 7:1,2

Yet, judge we do, constantly, everyday. We are judged by our skin color, the clothes we wear, how our hair looks, the music we listen to,  our speech,  our size, even by our written words,  and sadly not  given the chance to see what type of character we really portray.

Certain tragic events have been happening in our world that I can relate to on a daily basis. Seeing these events unfold before my very eyes has caused me great concern. What can I do, what can I say to bring attention to the fact that we are so grossly misjudged, mistreated, misunderstood, “Judged”.

I began to look at people and wonder if they have been judged.  So, I began to ask people if they have been judged and, wow, to my surprise what a response I have begun to get.  I will share my results of “Judged”

I started “Don’t Judge Me”  in Google Plus  (using the hash tag of  “Judged”) but realized I wanted to share my photographic journey here as well and see how far it goes.

The photo above is one of the first in the series.  As I have gotten out and spoken to people, men, women, of all ages and races, I find that we all have been judged in some way or another.  Join me on this photographic journey of “Judged”.

A series of Photos representing “Judged” will be on exhibit during the Art Show June 24th, 2016 at the Wilmington Coastline Conference Center, Wilmington, North Carolina.

Update as of August 26, 2017,  my series of “Judged” continues, for we are a judgmental society.
