My goal within this photo essay is to show that gender can be shown in a variety of ways through individuals who may be portrayed differently in society for who they are. Throughout this essay, Noah, sets stereotypes, breaks taboos, and shows the more delicate side to a man. Ashley, sets an unreachable limit of attainability for setting her feminine beauty standards high, and her non-conforming masculine look breaks a boundary, previously unattainable. From myself, today is a time of breaking many standards set by society generation after generation. Conformity is naive, meanwhile, uniqueness shows is individualism and a free expression.
