Double Take: A Memoir free pdf All my life I've been an object of curiosity, the subject of a stare. But, while I have shouldered the stares and stories of others, the story of how I've managed to travel the world is uniquely my own. "Double Take" is my story, and it begins in many ways the day I was placed on prosthetic stilts at the age of eight. The stilts served no purpose other than to make me appear 'normal'. Tears streamed down my face as I gazed up at the doctors. That day I realized I had to let go over other people's idea of 'normal' and find my own path. So I ditched the legs and, eventually, started to use a skate board to get around. In an attempt to capture the moments of intense curiosity I experience on a daily basis, I traveled to 17 countries and took over 32,728 photographs of people staring at me. In Zurich, I raced down the Limmat River against a group of twenty Vikings. In Bosnia, I scrambled to collect my groceries after being side swiped by a car. In Malaysia, I got caught in torrential rainstorms and had to skate and paddle with one hand, while keeping my camera above the rising tide with the other.

About Kevin Michael Connolly

Kevin Connolly was born in Helena, Montana in August of 1985. Born without legs, Kevin was otherwise a healthy baby and grew up like any other Montana kid- getting dirty, running in the woods, and getting dirty some more. In the way developments tend to snowball, Kevin began skateboarding and taking photographs for the first time in 2005. His first taste of living abroad came in 2006 when he left to study in New Zealand for one year. It was on the return home - skating down a backstreet in Vienna - that Kevin took his first prototype photo for what was to become The Rolling Exhibition. Kevin currently lives in Bozeman, Montana as a photographer and professional skier. For more information on Kevin's other endeavors, please navigate to www.kevinmichael connolly.com
