About my work
These photos form part of my "Cloaked" and "Men and Water" series. My work aims to portray men, in particular black men, through a more sensible and nuanced lens. Black men have been historically hypersexualized or reduced to their physical strength by Westernized patriarchal systems. I'm interested in portraying them as complex, multifaceted, vulnerable beings.
