Our goal at See.7 is to appreciate the cornucopia of ideas the world has to offer. As we begin a new year, we hope for greater understanding and peace among all the world’s peoples.
Photographer Sophia Kahlenberg explains the inspiration behind her latest editorial, “Same, But Different.”
“Same, But Different” assumes that we all believe in something, it may just not be the same thing. This story plays with the different views different religions and cultures have on the world. The five outfits represent the five main religions: Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism. They are all included in this one story to show that we need to respect each other; that it is interesting to listen to different opinions and to think about different values and ideas. The world will eventually end for all of us, but until that happens, we all share this world together. And instead of fighting against each other we should rather accept and appreciate our differences.
