South African photographer Jodi Bieber's imagery is both poignant and powerful. His raw and candid portraits capture male subjects at vulnerable states and break popular misconceptions that are associated with masculinity.

While vulnerability and insecurity are often synonymous with female subjects, these photographs capture males that are not born with perfect bodies or necessarily blessed with good looks.

These images by Jodi Bieber capture intimate moments of their male subjects who pose shirtless while appearing exposed to the world. The series is entitled 'Quiet' and is a powerful translation of masculinity. While these men would appear confident and powerful when dressed in their everyday clothing, their undressed states leave them vulnerable and prone to criticism from others and themselves.
