The Wedding Dress Project (Men wearing wedding dresses)
This is a project i have been busy with for the last 4 months . I was donated a wedding dress , and yes a very nice one at that , from a random person on Facebook , who has been following my photography.
She said the dress has bad memories and maybe i could do somthing useful with it...
Well , HELL YES I CAN
So I have been convincing men , most with beards and hairy chests to wear the wedding dress , BUT I want to take photos of them in the dress doing every day things men do..
Like walking the dog , Going to the shop , Waiting at the bus stop
Sitting on the toilet...
I ask my "victims" I mean dress wears to be secure in their masculinity and be MEN ," just dont let the dress femanize you" , i shout at them...
So then do a few photos for me , and then I quickly get them out of the dress..
I ask them How they felt after wearing the dress..
Many said " Judged " , Other felt insecure , threatened was another word used..
With a long silence , I remind them , "This is how many woman feel when they are alone in a nice outfit in Public "
Would love to hear some comments from men and woman , would you do this ? Would you allow your son or husband to partake in this project ? And tell me why
