"Shifting Gears: Finding Intimacy in Men's Friendships" is a photo-narrative project by Dr. Robert Heasley and Neal Wecker; photography by Deborah Halpern. This exhibit portrays close and intimate relationships between male friends. Because such relationships are rarely portrayed in popular culture and run counter to many common images of “being a man,” there is little opportunity for men to find models for these friendships or to experience the value they offer. Sadly most people do not know that such relationships exist, or are possible. "Shifting Gears" displays friendships that seem to transcend these barriers - friendships between two men; the exhibit attempted to capture these relationships through a combination of photographs and narratives. http://www.mensfriendships.org/index.html Robert Heasley is the current President of the American Men's Studies Association
