As each of the worlds great religions developed they created their own design language to instill in their followers an understanding of their Gods.

A brief survey of middle-aged gay men, photographing male friends and acquaintances. Each is working within this newish photographic trope, and making it fresh. The rise of the gay liberation movement and photography as collectable art is parallel. The naked male still has the ability to make people feel uncomfortable, as the reality of the penis is disappointing compared to the phallus and its role in perpetuating patriarchal structures. By displaying these images we are conducting a reality check on masculine dominance.
