Discovering Masculinity Through The Lens of David Billet
David Billet is currently a student at the Maryland Institute College of Art and has been a photographer for the last three years. His striking color and black-and-white pictures show commonplace scenes. They range from depicting the real world to a dreamy vision of reality. Some portraits show men in different stages of life, couples and women in provocative poses. In his work the photographer takes the viewer on a search for meaning to explore emotions beyond the sex-, might-driven sphere. “My work is exploring the preconceived ideals of masculinity through portraits and spaces. I am looking at other humans to interpret my own feelings about masculinity and make sense of my own identity“, states Billet.
