Paul Hoelen & Troy Melville. A deeply unique body of work in both its intimacy and scope intended to both challenge and explore what defines healthy masculinity in Australian culture today.

This powerfully moving multi-media exhibition has won multiple awards for its impact on the health and well-being of both men and boys in Australia in 2019. Shot in complete confidentiality over almost two decades, this documentary exhibition presents a deeply unique body of work in both its intimacy and scope intended to both challenge and explore what defines healthy masculinity in Australian culture today.

In a time when much of the world’s media is choosing to focus on the darker side of what men are capable of, this project provides a refreshing, welcome and important counterbalance. It portrays the open-heartedness, courage, and vulnerability of men coming together to face their issues and work on becoming better men. Better fathers, brothers, partners and sons.
