the tenets of masculinity (2020)

"The Tenets of Masculinity" – a photography series shot on 35 mm black and white film. The series aims to visualize male vulnerability. The female vulnerability has been commercialized for years while emotional rejection was encouraged in modern masculinity. The photo series insinuates a replica of a family portrait setting – one that many Asian families take. In most of these portraits, the father and male counterparts hold dominant positions; therefore, I switched the roles. This series serves to not only destigmatize male weakness and emotion but it also encourages a strong female dominance.
