Portrait of Britain Winner 2021

WONDER BOY.

This is George, my youngest son. It’s one of the winning images for Portrait of Britain. George chose this outfit for his personal study “How Social Expectations of Masculine Attractiveness have Restricted Male Expression Through Fashion” He says “I think the way men are expected to be in society is detrimental. The expectation of ‘manliness’ – wanting all the ‘manly’ parts of the typical masculine attitude without any of the vulnerabilities. Limited emotional expression but still needing mature understanding of mental state. Its no wonder men struggle to develop a feminine side”

George my youngest son. He means the world to me and more importantly he has taught me a lot about the new world we now live in.
