Portraits


As someone who's always questioned (my own) gender identity I am fascinated by what masculinity and "being a man" means in this society. Over the years I've photographed lovers, friends, acquaintances, and strangers that I thought were interesting. What touched me about every single one of these men was not their (hyper) masculinity, but their vulnerability when they momentarily forgot I was there.
