The MENSECURITY PROJECT

Devan Anderson

On the sartorial side of things, I give my audience a safe space to openly speak about male insecurities and body issues, empowering them to navigate both social media and real life more confidently.

For this project I chose to focus on real guys that don’t fit the “standards” of mainstream fashion and manliness. For me to be effective at what I do—create open arenas for guys to talk about body issues and insecurities—it’s most important that I listen to the voices of people who deal with a variety of obstacles.
