In this book, Monika Macdonald focuses on the masculine. While her images echo classical pictorial iconography in their treatment of the nude, pose, or light, she draws portraits that are far removed from the traditional representations of the virility and beauty of the men she observes.

Macdonald, once again, shatters norms. It is a question of flesh, of confusion, of doubts, of the vulnerability of body, mind and feelings. She organises posing sessions behind closed doors, and these face-to-face sessions sometimes seem so stressful that the photographer/photographed relationship is pushed to its ultimate limits.The result is moving images, whether they are derisory, soft or raw, burlesque even: moments of abandonment, introspection or letting go, almost of insanity.

“Hulls is a photographic essay about my meeting with the man in a space without limitation. An intimate room for losing self-control. I am trying to relate and investigate his search for escapism, trust, to belong, or his resistance. I want to play with romance, self-confidence or lack of it, the vulnerable piece of body” – Monika Macdonald
