The series Maharajas, which is accompanied by an audio interview per portrait, explores the workings of contemporary masculinity, the blurring line of gender involved in male representation, and each subject’s view on these issues. These views may or may not be represented in their respective portraits. There is an exploration of surreal fashion, and the influences of idolatry, iconic imagery and miniaturist aesthetics are expressed through this body of work. These six portraits are a continuation of the series Maharanis and a continued attempt at contemporizing embellished photography.
