Leave it to legendary photographer Mario Testino to challenge the public on what masculinity means. Testino has a new hardcover book with over 300 shots and some unseen photographs. The book is titled ‘Sir’ and it explores the changing view of men, sexuality, and machismo. It’s the perfect addition to any coffee table book collection and it’s definitely a conversation starter. Most people are familiar with Testino’s work in the pages of Vogue. But his works goes beyond fashion and often challenges readers on what they are actually seeing.

These two shots already are creating a buzz. What is masculinity in 2015? I am not sure, but I bet this book will help us discover the many faces of a MAN. 




Are You Man Enough?

    • Yes! Sexuality and gender roles are often discussed in relation to women. It’s refreshing to see images used as a tool to widen the conversation in relation to men.

        I couldn’t agree more! Men too often get pushed into their gender “role” and I don’t think it is any more fair or right. I have a 6 year old son and any time someone uses the words “act like a boy” or “act like a man” it really frustrates me!

      • That would frustrate me too. We should allow people to express themselves in a way that comes naturally to them…as long as it isn’t dangerous to their well being or others’ well being.

        So true! I get correcting someone on grammar and teaching them the right way to do things when it comes to practical stuff, but when it comes to play and them expressing themselves I find it very offensive.
