'Shrouded' by Brenton Parry is this photographer’s first solo exhibition, yet how powerful it is! Looking at each image, I’m reminded of the words of Oscar Wilde: “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”

Nude male models reveal much of themselves, yet remain hidden behind scarves, sheets and screens. Shrouded by Brenton Parry captures the essence of insecurity, and the influence of a veil that gives one protection.
