Born in Helena, Montana, photographer Kevin Connolly grew up rafting rivers, skiing and climbing mountains. But Connolly is different from most of his fellow outdoor enthusiasts: He was born without legs. Refusing to let his physical state stop him from pursuing his passions, Connolly won a silver medal in skiing at the X Games. Using his winnings, he took an extended trip around the world, traveling mostly by propelling himself with his arms on a skateboard. Along the way, he documented people’s reactions to both his mode of transportation and his physical defect. The photo series garnered international attention, resulting in a book, Double Take, published in 2009 and exhibitions around the world.
