New Photographic Project for Men
Suffused with thoughts of addiction, and unwanted sexuality, performative portraiture and still life enact moments of British male identity, a concept in perpetual flux as the rigid grip of traditional dualisms of gender subside. One’s possession’s may be imbued with gendered connotations of power, status, and temperament. When photographed in conjunction with the white male body, do accoutrements become the building blocks of identity and are they used to buttress a continual gender imbalance? Much like the camera, the body is often considered a site of power, but the body may also be a site of a vulnerability that is required for us to grow.
