Phases is a moody testament about a man dealing with the emotions that come with finding love and lust. It is the epitome of masculinity to me because it is honest, vulnerable, and yet still strong, confident, and secure.
Heavily inspired by the men who raised me such as my dad & brother, and the conversations I’ve had with homies about love, life, and women.
Masculinity and what it means to be a man is normally depicted in one way, especially as it pertains to a women. None of these depictions have ever been a true wholistic portrayal of the image I was shown. They’re simply just a skewed view of a man during one particular Phase.
So while creating this project I allowed myself to shed tears, revisit past relationships and even say things I would shy away from. Phases is my truth as a man dealing with women and the rollercoaster ride of finding love and lust. It is the story of many, that just never was told!
