Kevin Connolly was born without legs. The Montana native is healthy otherwise. He skateboards and has done things the rest of us born with legs only dream of.

But, his appearance causes others discomfort. He has lived his life with the stares of strangers. Though he has lived a normal life, he can’t get around those looks of pity and anxiety.

On a trip to Europe, Connolly took a photograph of one gawker. That one photograph has turned into 32,000. The photographic is exhibit is called the “Rolling Exhibition”.

The photographs capture the range of emotions people experience when they see something out of the ordinary. They don’t realize that while they are staring they’ve been observed. It’s an interest mix of expressions that he has captured.
