Men-ups

pin up photos men

Rion Sabean was born and raised in Tampa, Florida, and is currently finishing up his time at the University of South Florida, where he is receiving his BFA in photography. Post graduation sees endless avenues, but the most important thing to him is ‘to get out of Florida’.

He writes, ‘My work tends to be either an overt social commentary, or rooted in deeply personal subjects relating directly to myself. With the Men-ups! series, it was definitely the former that was more so embraced and the issue of gender roles was my target. It has always interested me how the sexes have been pitted against one another and taught to believe that gender roles/identities and biologically assigned sexes were one in the same, especially since that couldn’t be further from the truth. How can color have a sex? How can a pose be acceptable (and even provocative) for one, and not the other? From these ideas, and many, many more, was born the series, one in which I hope breeds thought and insight on just how ridiculous and restrictive the socially created gender roles are from their very inception’.

    I agree, and enjoyed this greatly. (I actually… have talked to my boyfriend about this, several times. He found this link, and sent it to me). I quiet enjoyed and found it interesting.

    This is absolutely great stuff! I love it, the men, the clothes (especially the sneakers / slip-on sneakers), and the concept. I hope he’ll expand it to include other pin-up contrasts not yet tried, such as Women in Manly poses, as well as Manly men in Manly men poses.
