Photographer Cris de Bos: "In an ideal world every day I would be amazed by the beauty of nature, would everyone be treated as equal, with respect and there would be no norm on how people are supposed to look or be. But that place doesn’t exist, not on this planet at least.

In an Ideal World...

Earth is getting destroyed and there’s still war, hate, racism, and discrimination every day. With me being gay, overweight, and having a handicap I know what it’s like to be treated differently, yet it has never defined me. But there are plenty of kids who struggle with this on a daily basis. There wasn’t much representation for me growing up. The same goes for the fashion industry. Fortunately, there is more diversity recently, but there are still not enough equal opportunities. Diversity is usually portraited very simple and pure, rarely in combination with high fashion or big concepts.
