We’re all here with the primal expectations of procreation, and to provide apparently. For men, these expectations have blurred, with the big decision - making coming later on life.
The Age of Expectation was a series of anthropological sessions with a series of 20-something and 30-something men living in urban areas. The red thread that bound them together was their redefined ideals – having the time to reflect, aspire and procrastinate in a time which for previous generations was about setting up home, settling down and having children.
“I feel like with some blokes, you have to man it up, be more of a traditional man. It’s like standing your ground, putting up that boundary”
In each of the sessions photography was the unspoken element, with the focus being on a 2-way discussion on masculine expectation what it implies.
Masculine identity dominated conversations, where together we scratched below the surface to find raw and genuine emotion, feelings and meaning.
