A note from Emily:

"There are deeply rooted expectations of the way people should be or act. As a society, we often cling to assumptions without questioning or challenging them. MR. is a series of social commentary regarding the expectations of males in our culture. The subjects in the photographs are attached to presumptions of societal norms and obligations that linger over the male figure from generation to generation. In the context of each photograph, there is something off that you can't grasp entirely, an ever so present underlying disturbance hovering around the frame. Every image focuses on a category that the “ideal man” falls under; touching on topics such as economic stature, physicality, and patriarchal structures."

 

Mr. Fixit_ Men are supposed to have the inborn ability to fix things
