Male Domains - The Pub #4, 2006

by Regan Kennedy

National Photographic Portrait Prize 2007 Finalist

This image is part of a series investigating changes in contemporary Australian masculinity. What is the male role? Men have been challenged to construct a new 'model' of masculinity, taking elements from traditional hegemonic archetypes and combining them with current societal expectations. The series illustrates men in their traditionally known 'domains' and non traditional/ new domains. This image is of a pub, where men of varying age, sexuality and social status gather daily with a common goal: to relax and unwind. It was shot on a Linhof Technica camera on 4x5 sheet film, with various cinema lights used throughout the space to highlight individual characters.
