My project began a few years ago with an image of my then 11 yo son Theo in his daddy's arms. Their bodies were wrapped in a tender, almost romantic embrace and conveyed an intimacy I wanted to explore. I soon began to observe Theo's emotional life unfolding within the privileged space of their relationship. As Theo moves through his middle and high school years, ordinary moments feel like turning points as he navigates an emerging self-identity amidst the pressure of masculine culture and his continued need for connection. And through Daddy's role as confidante, playmate, and anchor, I picture what it might feel like for a boy to come of age.
