Dwarf's hidden camera captures verbal abuse hurled at him
As a dwarf living in New York City, Jonathan Novick has unfortunately become accustomed to being photographed and mocked by strangers.
But the 22-year-old, who has a type of dwarfism called acondroplasia, finally thought enough is enough and decided to do something about it.
He said: "I wanted to stop telling people what happened to me and I wanted to start showing people what happened to me.
"I wanted to show everyone what a day in my life was like."
So he took a camera, disguised as a button on his shirt, and went about his day in the city.
People were slyly taking photographs of him, thinking he wouldn't notice while others brazenly hurl abuse like "Hey short stuff" at him.
One man bizarrely told him as he walked past: "Little midget! Big man, big penis."
Some people even approached him thinking he was Zach Roloff, who is a cast member of reality show Little People, Big World.
Novick ends the film with a poignant note.
“The next time you see someone who is different than you, think about what their day might be like," says Novick.
"Think about all the events of their life leading up to that point, and think about their day — and think about what part of their day you want to be?”
