In this series, I wanted to contrast the fragility of a young baby with the masculine qualities of its father.
Fatherhood tends to bring out gentle, caring, qualities in a man.
I love how, somewhat ironically, this enhances his sex appeal.
In this work, I have explored the visual qualities of the father using a young, coastal Aussie dad as my protagonist,
I use comedy to playfully deconstruct and reimagine the idea of a father – in this case, a “dad in training.”
Tantalizing and unapologetic, the focus here is firmly on the father, as seen from the perspective of a gay male gaze.
