"In a continuing exploration into the many nuances of gender identity and masculinity, Wallflower II, turns the camera to masculine identifying individuals from a spectrum of backgrounds. Much like Wallflower (shot between 2006-2008), the portraits stem from an ongoing intrigue regarding masculine identity when stripped of personal context - sitting bare within a constructed, impermanent environment. Unlike Wallflower, which aimed the lens at cisgender men almost entirely photographed in my personal space, Wallflower II explores a much broader sense of masculine identity- shot in the personal space of strangers in urban and rural Georgia upon first meeting and found through online calls / searches surrounding ideas of masculinity and gender in the American South. The work aims to confront socially constructed ideas and standards surrounding both gender and masculinity, vulnerability and beauty."
