The paradox of masculinity

Father and son.

The bond between father and son is complex. The responsibility of leading by example and balancing masculinity is tough. Across the world, withdrawing in your basic emotions, hiegtens your masculinity. How can you learn to be a man without knowing you’re human first? This photoset shows a father and son bonding the only way they know how.


Son, do as I show you
Never be the one to cry
You always have something to prove
So keep your emotions inside
Yesterday we were strangers,
Now we bond and we touch
This is the only way I can say
I love you so much

Confrontation.Small talk.
