Allison Plass’ photographs are a powerful exploration of masculinity, vulnerability, and cultural narratives. With a background in art history and influences from Western art, feminism, and film theory, Plass' work challenges conventional depictions, unveiling cultural myths and stories that people hold about their lives.

Plass seeks to disrupt traditional portrayals of boys and men, aiming to unveil the softer and more uncertain aspects often overlooked in mainstream depictions, thus presenting a more complex and nuanced perspective. Through her lens, Plass examines how cultural representations of the past shape the stories individuals carry about themselves. She questions how images of vulnerability and intimacy can complicate prevailing cultural narratives, reshaping male gender dynamics and how they are perceived by society.
