16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This photography is coming from my research on masculinity and gender identity. I want to question the society expectations towards men, concerning their physical or mental characteristics.
The body is usually an important part of identity, impacting and impacted by the social/media environment and the personality of its "owner". With this photograph, I tried to deconstruct the body of the model, focusing on the most "personal" parts, and playing with his shapes, to highlight the sweetness of his masculinity.
