Curated by Rylan Steele and Michael McFalls from works in The Do Good Fund Collection, the selected 51 photographs by 22 male and female artists were drawn from a broad and diverse collection of over 600 images. The curators of Looking Male are both artists and educators that grew up in the South and currently call Georgia home. The photographs included in this exhibition were chosen because it allowed the curators to talk about the only perspective they can see the world from: southern, middle class, white, and male. This exhibition offers two varied but similar points of view. It is intended to be evaluated in a nuanced manner without being exclusive to an identity. Looking Male represents what the curators know and understand. This exhibition invites critique, analysis, investigation, and admiration for what it means to be a man in the South.
