Lee Kynaston
The Telegraph Magazine, 2020.

In August, I was asked to photograph Lee Kynaston for an editorial commission for The Telegraph Magazine. The portrait photographs accompanied the printed written piece by Kynaston with themes that are close to my heart. It was a real pleasure to be part of something that examines men’s mental health and dealing with the pressures of a global pandemic.

"For men, of course, these challenges are compounded by stiff-upper-lip stereotypes, outdated notions of masculinity and a reluctance to open up about mental-health issues." - Lee Kynaston, 2020.
