Working with identity in male culture Jess's work follows two young men during the delicate stage of adolescence to adulthood. She wanted to challenge stereotypical influences that she felt over powered the ideas of male identity and through this set out to capture a universal experience that was honest and relatable. This process brought out an amalgamation of factors that impact our development during this time and one that felt significant was masculinity. In terms of male culture, the interpretation of masculinity was something that Jess felt was too structured and defined and as a result wanted to work within the associations of this theme.
