what does it mean to be male in 2016?

 
 

What does it mean to be male in 2016? is a series of portraits of males. They are photographed topless for two reasons: I see them as being vulnerable and I see males as a sex as being somewhat lost in terms of answering the question of what it means to be male. There has never been a male equivalent to a Betty Friedan or a Gloria Steinem — powerful feminists who were instrumental in talking about what it means to be female. The second reason is that in art history females have typically posed nude for male eyes and males have typically posed in important costumes to show their importance in society
