Kevin Michael Connolly has been bitten in half by a shark, is an Iraqi War vet, is a panhandler, has been in a number of car accidents, and had a horrible disease. He is all of these things and none of these things.
Connolly is an object of intense curiosity and subject of the stare, of the Double Take.
This is how he perceived by others. In reality Connolly was just born without legs and grew up in rural Montana. He is an athlete and a photographer and traveled the world taking photos of people looking at at him. Taking photos of their double takes.
Great memoir by Kevin Michael Connolly. Born without legs, Connolly travels the world by skateboard when he reaches young adulthood. When he finally tires of people staring at him, he begins to photograph the "double takes" of those who stare at him during his travels. in this way he begins to take back control and he then develops his photographs into an art exhibition. It's also a great look at how parents who didn't have any special resources-- but who had a lot of common sense -- instilled confidence in their son with their unwavering support.
