Masculinity: A Photo Series About Manhood (NSFW)

22.05.2019

Petri Damsten is a fine art photographer based in Kuopio, Finland. When Petri takes photographs, it is not just about the final result, but it is a form of therapy, which helps him to process thoughts creatively. Petri’s series titled, "Masculinity: A Photo Series About Manhood,” questions the idea of the perceived image of “masculine.” He states, "I have always found that the old model of what man should be is too restricted and often harmful. It inspired me to start this series and share my thoughts as images.”
