The Best Part of Me is You

c-type prints

"The best part of me is you" is a project discovering my own identity as a man, by using photography I am about to decipher who I am through the people I am drawn to photograph. I can see how the more effeminate man becomes more accepted in society as we move into a generation of men who are more openly expressive in challenging what is typically conceived as masculine. Some of the men photographed in the project I’ve known for years and others i've only had a few interactions with before asking to photograph them but all of them have shown me a part of my own identity in them.
