Big Papi series Gilleam explores representations of Masculinity

Gilleam Trapenberg a recent graduate from  The Hague’s Royal Academy of Art is an art photographer who unveiled his new 2017 series tiled ‘Big Papi’.  Trapenberg explores the links between masculinity and identity shot in his  Caribbean home of Curaçao.

“Masculinity and Representation have long played a part in my work since these are relevant themes that make up the social landscape in Curacao, an island in the Caribbean where I was born and raised. Curacao is an island of paradoxes. Where the cliche of macho-culture exists alongside strong, independent women and pink coloured skies. Big Papi is a visual research into the image culture of masculinity set against a sunset lit Caribbean landscape. A time of day in which borders are less defined.”

These photographs were made in St. Lucia, Barbados, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, St. Maarten and Curaçao between 2015 and 2017.
