    Jason Freeman

I use photography to explore masculinity and what it means to be sensitive and vulnerable. It’s been a difficult subject to work, as the self-portraiture capture of these images open me up to a most vulnerable state of being. As I create images, I draw inspiration from a world that would attempt to define masculinity for me. I take these concepts and look at them from different angles to capture the essence of what I am. This series of nudes conveys an openness and vulnerability that emphases my desire to understand these social expectations and how they evolve into my imagery.

Jason Freeman born in Maine, is an American photographer based in Mid-Coast Maine. He uses his camera to capture light and life to interpret his self-exploration. He brings curiosity and his camera with him, probing the nature of internal and external perception (or realities) that drive his journey. He uses the camera to explore his relationship with masculinity, and how the social metaphysics of these expectations shape him. His search for mood and light awaken his subconscious. Where words fail, his camera helps him to understand.
