There was once a time when the male form was celebrated in sculpture and paintings, seen equally as beautiful as a woman’s. Throughout time the ideals and rules of beauty have changed. Perhaps when culture started defining gender and sexuality, men were swayed from perceiving the masculine as beautiful. Revisiting the classical and statuesque, I wanted to explore the male form, creating iconic moments by evoking vulnerability. I wanted to merge fashion with nude and showcase a raw perspective of the models, stripping away cultural confinements and uncovering the deeper beauty in masculinity. In a time of disposable art, I wanted to channel the Renaissance, and sculpt men of today into timeless figures through my photographs to show male models as muses.
