Men/Still/Shooting

Image by Rod Spark

The male gaze directed to males

Scott Davis, Travis De Jonk, Eureka, Bentron Parry, Rod Spark & Ross Spirou

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.
