Gentle Alpha A visual exploration of contrasting masculinity.

Spontaneous, full of emotion, and dashed with colour.

Smooth, unlike the popular depictions of roughness and alpha maleness.

This series of photos, shot with limited photographic tools, is both a lesson in resourcefulness and representation.
