When photographer Adrain Chesser tested positive for HIV and was diagnosed with AIDS, he knew that he had to break the news to his family and friends somehow. Eventually, he came up with the idea of letting his loved ones know about his condition by inviting them to his studio, one by one, for a simple, intimate photo shoot for an unnamed project. Unbeknownst to them, Chesser intended to reveal his illness and capture their reactions for a powerful portrait series titled, I Have Something to Tell You.
Each image in the collection presents a separate, singular person in Chesser’s life reacting to the unfortunate news. They each have an expressive response to his secret that is easily seen through their physical demeanor and particularly through their facial expressions. Whether they are creasing their brows, trying to comprehend and soak in the devastating news of their friend’s health, clutching their chest in shock and disbelief, or solemnly shedding a tear, each person has a heartfelt, honest reaction.
Chesser says, “I’ve always felt I would do almost anything to know the power of holding a split second in my hands, and look at it as long and as lovingly as I care to, to capture something as elusive as an emotion, and to feel the power of that emotion possess me each time I look at it…while these photos are probably the worst pictures ever taken of my friends, they are undoubtedly the most beautiful.”

This is actually some great info! Why can’t they teach this kind of thing in school??
Anytime someone says they’re not okay with the Plan B pill I want to show them this.
I’ve taken this. It’s not too bad. Not great, but not terrible. YMMV. :)

Good job pet store. That is what’s up.
I worked in a pet store for 5 years, and every Easter our rabbit sales went up exponentially. I can tell you from experience that almost half of the rabbits we sold were brought back in as early as two weeks after they were adopted. Some people let them loose, and some people send them to a shelter. People need to understand this very statement, and truly think about it. A rabbit is a big commitment, and should not be a fad or seen as a compulsory pet.
I cannot like this anymore than once, but I sure as hell hope people will spread this message, because it’s important as hell. I used to hand out care sheet BOOKLETS to everyone looking to adopt, and it prevented many of them from adopting in the end.
This goes for any animal, holy hell big underscores and exclamation marks. Huge props to this pet store for trying to put their pets before sales instead of shelling them out like candy.
