Men by Nir Arieli, a photographer based in New York City, captures the tougher sex in a fairer light. While women are more often than not cast as the muse of artists around the world, this photographer has decided to shift the focus in order to showcase a different perspective in just as arresting a way. By defying traditional gender norms, it also embraces modern times.
The soft gaze of the lens lends Men by Nir Arieli a sensitive tone often associated with women. With 'beauty and gracefulness' at the centre of his work, as he points out on his website, there is nevertheless a well of sad emotion as though he has never been able to fully do away with his military background.
