Men With Heart Description
In a time when much of the world’s media is choosing to focus on the darker side of what men are capable of, the Men with Heart project provides a refreshing, welcome and important counterbalance by portraying the open-heartedness, courage, and vulnerability of men coming together to face their issues and work on becoming better men. Better fathers, brothers, partners and sons.
Shot in complete confidentiality over almost two decades, this documentary exhibition presents a deeply unique body of work in both its intimacy and scope intended to both challenge and explore what defines healthy masculinity in Australian culture today. This powerfully moving multi-media exhibition has already won multiple awards for its impact on the health and well-being of both men and boys in Australia and is preparing to tour the country.
Paul will explore ideas and learnings about how to approach such intimate and long term documentary work as a photographer through the lens of this project.
