    Influenced by childhood experiences of growing up in rural Oklahoma, Jon Ervin uses photography to explore the confusion and frustration that is ingrained in American male culture today. Ervin examines the framework of masculinity that men abide by everyday in order to expose discrepancies and absurdities. Targeting the nostalgia, excess, and aggressive nature of the masculinity, he questions what is authenticality a masculine identity.
