Men may learn a lot if they walk a mile in a woman's shoes. Well, that what Spanish photographer Jon Uriarte wanted to find out with his smart photo series. He talked with his male friends about how relationships between guys and girls have changed from what they were in the past. Through the conversations, he came up with the idea of photographing men wearing their girlfriends' clothing.
The series, entitled The Men Under the Influence, explores the balance of equality in relationships. It also is meant to convey confusion men feel with the changing roles of men and women. The men are photographed alone in the space they share with their partners. Uriarte took the photos over the course of three years in the U.S. and Spain.
He writes on his site:
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-lenght portraits of men wearing the clothes of their girlfriends or wifes, taken in the space shared by the couple.
