Gavin Oliver Devine

I am another

Taking inspiration from my 'coming out' experience I have developed a photographic investigation into what it is to be a gay man in Ireland today.  When sitting for a portrait my subjects are casually interviewed about their 'coming out' and through the conversation I attempt to visually document the emotions that surface on their face during the course of these dialogues. Working with a range of ages I attempt to remove the stereotypes of gay men and instead show how homosexuality has moved throughout the generations.  It is not just a "fashionable fad" as some may see it but a real, difficult and important aspect of the sitter's life.  Through my work I hope to highlight the obstacles and inner-trials men face when coming to terms with their sexuality.
