Photographer and Artist Troy B. Thompson discusses his project the No Evil Project and how we can all challenge stereotypes and embrace the diversity of our humanity through challenge and conversation.

Troy is the creator of the No Evil Project, where he has photographed over 6,000 people posing as the three wise monkeys to challenge stereotypes and encourage conversation around the topics of race, religion, politics, sexuality, disabilities and more.  The project currently has four permanent installations; has photo shoots at festivals, colleges, schools, and other organizations; and facilitates youth programming around labels, self-awareness, and anti-bullying.  Troy is the founder of Daedal Creations, Inc. web design and Troy B.
