‘Crying Men’ is a collection of photographic portraits of famous film actors by London’s Sam Taylor-Wood sharing the true emotion and vulnerability of what it looks like when men cry.  Music is Art posted a few photos of this series back when it started in 2006 but over the years, this beautiful project has grown and developed into an artistic event. Many may create their own interpretations from these pictures but the most important quality that can be taken from the overall reaction, is how important it is to feel.

Sam Taylor-Wood explains, “Some of the men cried before I even finished loading the camera, but others found it really difficult. People can decide for themselves which they think are the authentic tears and which they think are fake. It’s about the idea of taking these big, masculine men and showing a different side.”
