These are portraits of men who have tough facial features in a feminine historical hairstyle. The goal is to raise awareness of social stereotypes and to illuminate how much social media determines the way we see another human being from a different background than ours. We chose this 5 different models based on their asthetic and backgrounds, important was to have this manly impression in order to make this pictures work. We judge people alot with minor knowledge about them. Based on the facial characteristic without seeing the hair the viewer will build a totally different opinion about those persons that if he see the complete picture, so seeing one side doesn't essentially reflect the real person.
