Men I Know is an environmental portraiture series in which I explore my relationship with men in my life including friends, lovers, and acquaintances. I focus on the male gaze, figure, construction of identity as well as the domestic space they inhabit. I grew up in a small dairy community, throughout my adolescence I can remember having a hard time developing friendships with other boys. I didn't identify with boy culture instead I developed an awareness of my own queerness early on. I've always had a disconnection with other members of the same-sex, my body and my own masculinity. By photographing them I explore from my Queer perspective the disconnection that I have understanding the men in my life and "what it means to be a man."
