“Revelatii” e un manifest care arata latura emotionala a barbatilor. Intr-o lume in care “ne asteptam” ca barbatii sa fie mereu puternici si rationali, intr-o societate care ii invata pe baieti ca daca arati ceea ce simti, esti slab, sa vorbesti despre sentimente sau emotii e o slabiciune, nu trebuie sa uitam ca si barbatii au emotii. Si ca unii dintre cei mai puternici dintre ei le poarta la vedere. Cei mai puternici oameni isi arata emotiile. Pentru ca increderea in sine vine cu increderea in emotiile pe care le ai si acceptarea lor, oricare ar fi ele.

Este si despre o noua generatie de tineri barbati care sunt mult mai deschisi si mai constienti de diferitele parti ale personalitatii lor, ale partii spirituale si a felului in care social media i-a ajutat sa fie mai deschisi cu ceea ce simt ei si cu partea pe care de obicei o numesti “vulnerabilitate”. E switch-ul milenialilor care a inspirat “Revelatii”.

Proiectul dezvaluie mai multe tipuri ale masculinitatii. E despre cum 10 oameni au fost fotografiati in patru ipostaze similare ale vietii lor:

  • fara emotii vizibile
  • cu emotii pozitive exagerate, smiley-face-social-media inspired
  • o perspectiva intima a personajului
  • o perspectiva din afara, cum ii vezi pe strada, de la departare

Cu doua exceptii, toti oamenii care au fost pozati pentru “Revelatii” au fost descoperiti pe Instagram sau Facebook dupa cateva luni de urmarit activitatea lor si felul in care isi proiecteaza personalitatea online. Individualitatea fiecaruia dintre ei a construit un puzzle ce a dat titlul seriei de fotografii.

Proiectul il include si pe fotograf care trece prin acelasi tipar si a fost realizat intre iunie si decembrie 2016.

“Revelation” is a manifesto that shows the men’s emotional side. In a world where men are expected to always be strong & rational and where society teaches boys that it’s a weakness to feel, to talk about feelings or show them because it’s a sign of weakness, one must not forget that men have emotions too. And the strongest ones, wear them on their sleeve. Or their faces.

It’s also about how the new generation of young men are waking up to new sides of their personalities, to their spirituality and how social media helped them to be more open about their emotions and the side of them that you usually call “vulnerability”. It’s the beautiful milennial switch that inspired “Revelation”.

The project reveals different types of masculinity. It’s the story of each of the 10 guys that were photographed in four similar life situations:

– with no emotions

– with over-positive emotions

– an intimate view

– the outside view, how you would see them on the street

With two exceptions, all the people involved in the project were found on Instagram after weeks or months of following their activity and finding unique features that inspired me to make this puzzle called “Revelation”.

The project also includes me, the photographer going through the same pattern. The photos were taken between June 2016 and December 2016.
