BOYHOOD and MANHOOD are intertwined yet separate series; borne out of an interest in dissecting what masculinity is within differing periods of life. BOYHOOD encapsulates the adolescent stage of Josephine’s brothers with an emphasis on their relationship with each other and masculinity and how this evolves. It began upon noticing that the youngest brother had the build of a child whereas the other brother had begun to take on the physical features of a man. She captures this difference from standing on the edge of childhood to being on the verge of adulthood. MANHOOD depicts men in early adulthood and their understandings of masculinity; specifically societal expectations of male behaviour and unpacking what these are and how they are created.
