Photographer Rion Sabean has been doing a series of portraits he calls “Men-Ups“. The idea is to do a gendered-expectation bending by photographing men we would traditionally stereotype as very ‘masculine’ (beards, messy hair, dressed as workmen, lumbjerjacks, soldiers, etc) in highly-stylized poses that we associate with delicate, objectified femininity. That is, take pictures of men as though you’re taking pin-ups.
The results, as you can imagine, are hilarious as well as interesting.
