The Essence of Masculinity – Portraits of Men

The Essence of Masculinity – Portraits of Men

We are at the end of our two week Portrait Deep Dive and I thought I’d end it with one more portrait collection for you. Last week we had Inspiring Portraits of Women, this week it’s the mens’ turn!

The Essence of Masculinity – Portraits of Men

First I want to share with you some portraits of men, by a man – Zuhair Ahmad. I found Zuhair’s work on Flickr last week and liked it so much I asked him to write an article for dPS and he’s agreed – watch for it soon! Here are a few of Zuhair’s portraits of men to start you off:

Tell me it’s not just me and that there’s something special in his images?! The eyes of each of these men speak to me! Do they speak to you? What do they say to you? I see great sadness and wisdom in all of them.

More from Zuhair later – let’s see more portraits of men! Look at each of them one by one. Give each image its due time. What do you see here that is consistent among all of them?  What is different or special about each?
