We are so excited you made it to The Man Effect. This website is a photography and blog-based project built on the foundations of one question. "If you were to describe what it means to be a man in one word, what would it be and why?" The above self-portrait is the first photo captured for the project. Timothy, the founder, chose the word authentic because of his desire to be a man of his word and to be honest with himself and those around him; this core value ignited a journey to define what it means to be an authentic person. What sits before you is what has unraveled thus far.
