Prompted by #metoo, school shootings, bullying, and other toxic behavior, there's a national conversation going on about what defines masculinity and how to raise sons to become good people. And Kate Parker is joining in by turning her lens to boys. The result is possibly even more moving, more eloquent, more surprising than Strong. The Heart of a Boy is a deeply felt celebration of boyhood as it's etched in the faces and bodies of dozens of boys, ages 5 to 18. There's the pensive look of a skateboarder caught in a moment between rides. The love of a younger brother hugging his older brother. The intensity in a football huddle. There are guitarists, fencers, wrestlers, star-gazers, a pilot—it's the world of our sons, in all their amazing variety and difference. The photographs feel spontaneous, direct, and with so much eye contact between the viewed and the viewer that it's impossible to turn away. And throughout, words from the boys themselves enrich every photo.
