BE A MAN

The project ‘Be a man’ is an exploration of gender subversion through fashion and beauty, focusing on challenging ideas based around masculinity, aiming to transform this through creative practices such as makeup and fashion to distort the idea of ‘what it is to be a man’ in the queer community. ‘Be a man’ stands up for all those who have been pigeonholed into suppressing their self-expression. The images that I captured showcase individuals who aren’t afraid of showing the world who they truly are – showing everyone there is more than one way to be a man.
