This is an ongoing photographic project through which the artist critiques how traditional, outdated norms of masculinity influence what we expect, or don’t expect, to see in family photographs and self-portraits. This largely autobiographical series explores the emotions the artist went through after he left an office-based job to become the primary care-giver for the family’s young daughters. These often-humorous images convey his emotions over the years, from loneliness and confusion to joy. The work is partly inspired by Virginia Woolf who, in her 1927 novel To the Lighthouse, introduces the concept of ‘the admirable fabric of masculine intelligence’.
