Art Director & Photographer
  A personal study of my cross-cultural experience, addressing conformity to gender role norms; hegemonic masculinity, self-stigma and attitudes dictated by a dominant traditional culture. I photographed men in my cultural context, using powder as a fresh, clean and absorbent metaphor to what it is to be human, making the journey of the tear more striking. The tag captures a sense of death; the curtain is removed - #everybodyknows men cry.     2015 |   IPA HONORABLE MENTION  , Professional: Fine Art, Portrait. 2014 |   PX3 GOLD  : Non-Professional Portraiture, Culture 2014 |   PX3 GOLD & SILVER  : Non-Professional Press, People/Personality 2014 |   PX3 SILVER   : Non-Professional Fine Art and Press    EDITION 1/5 + 1AP   80cm x 80cm
