Blah Blah Genitals by photographer Julia Falkner and stylist Lorena Hydeman is a photo documentary series exploring the formation of gender identity in boys between the ages of six and sixteen. It was exhibited at Galleria Lattuada in Milan as part of Photo Vogue Festival's group show Embracing Diversity. I have been brought on board to shoot and edit video portraits of 4 boys.

Blah Blah Genitals has been covered by ID, Dazed, It's Nice That and Guardian amongst others. Two films I created with the duo as part of the commission have also been exhibited in Milan and can be found on SHOWStudio.

Blah Blah Genitals is a visual subversion of what it means to be a man; today‚Äôs generation of boys helped to create it through their honest, innocent and raw self-expression." (

"... the portraits are accompanied by video interviews (with videography by Asli Demirbilek) with each subject, reflecting on the shoot, how it made them feel, and their opinions on masculinity." (It's Nice That)
