Photography Series by Fer Piña
“Unrestrained” investigates masculine identity and vulnerability in young males. Exploring the opposite of a traditional man. This body of work, while specifically depicting males, is about going against what is established by society and getting rid of the gender stereotypes, making your own rules, and defining yourself without using social references that fail to define us. My works want to see a world that is not limited, but is a place for spontaneous expression for individuals.

I just wanted to cover the parts that biologically define the masculine gender.
