Photography Series + Magazine

A photography series and magazine aiming to represent and celebrate intimacy, affection, and emotional vulnerability within male friendships. These friendships can tend to focus on ‘doing’ over talking. The emotional intelligence, and confidence that comes from discussion of emotions and the self, has been lost on a lot of boys. Boys, because this example needs to be set for the boys who are working out how to become men.

The images focus on one pair of friends at a time, who are photographed whilst talking through aspects of their friendships in the place they hang out most, and are made to hug for a minute at the end.
