On October 24th, 2015, in an all too familiar story,
a young central coast man, Rhys McNaughton, took his life.
This year, in a bigger Movember than ever before, John Bortolin, an Australian photographer is putting together a calendar with images of Rhys to raise awareness and funds for Suicide Prevention. John put together a book called Manscapes, featuring many young men including, at the time young model, Rhys. Because of this book John has over 2000 images of the 24 year old that he is going to use to create a new limited edition Manscape Calendar that’ll be sold to raise funds for the Movember campaign.
These days, it’s becoming more and more apparent that young men are put under a damaging amount of stress to be “manly” and “strong” that dealing with emotions as a young man has become an impossible task. It’s a stigma that puts young men at risk and creates sweeping depression through an mere social expectation.
100% of the profits from the sales of Rhys’s Calendar will go towards the Movember Australia Campaign.
