Various installations of "He Opened Up Somewhere Along the Eastern Shore"
“He Opened Up Somewhere Along The Eastern Shore” is a photography project which engages image-making as a platform to intervene inside Western culture’s traditions and expectations related to masculinity, class, and heroism. This project opens up a space for a counter-narrative to exist. This new narrative focuses on individual experience, vulnerability, and intimacy as opposed to that which is enforced by the State, an impenetrable unit of men.
“We, the men of these images and I, might not sit at an equal distance from the center, but we all have a complicated relationship to what is considered normal -- to our beneﬁt and our destruction.”
