"Masc” is a photographic series that explores the intersection of three fronts: the male body, the homosexual gaze and the performance of masculinity. It starts from a ubiquitous term in apps and social networks for homosexual men, which means masculine, and which contains a series of assumptions about who uses it and who it is used for. The points of contact between the performance of masculinity through male bodies and objects against the photographer's gaze as a homosexual man who experiences this paradox seek to reflect on the troubling of gender and the distortion of masculinity from the same precepts that solidify it in its traditional form.
