Jon Uriarte
Uriarte's simply presented concept reveals much about gender identity and roles.

Jon Uriarte's statement (in both English and Spanish) below:

"The men under the influence..." addresses the recent change in roles in heterosexual relationships from the relationships of our predecessors and how those changes have affected men in particular. the photos attempt to capture men's sense of loss reference, now that women have taken a step forward and have finally come into their own as equal partners. The project consists of full-length portraits of men wearing the clothes of their girlfriends or wives, taken in the space shared by the couple.

"The men under the influence..." incide en el reciente cambio de roles en las relaciones de pareja heterosexuales. Busca representar la sensación de pérdida de referencias por parte del hombre cuando se relaciona con mujeres que han dado un paso mas allá conquistando, por fin, un espacio propio y cómo ese triunfo por parte de ellas, crea una sensación de extravío en ellos. El proyecto se compone de retratos de hombres vestidos con la ropa de sus parejas, realizados en sus espacios compartidos.
