Looking at men in their twenties, I wanted to explore both the physical differences and the body language of the men of this generation. I told each subject to do whatever they wanted while I was photographing them, in order to reveal truth about each person and how they were feeling in the moment the photograph was taken. Some could not even confront the camera. By asking them to be topless, I have removed anything they may have been able to hide behind, I have removed their armour. Revealing to us something they may not normally want to show.

“These beautiful portraits catch three young men on the cusp of manhood. Uncertain and painfully self-conscious the photographer captures an essential quality of what perhaps defines every man, whatever his age.”
