Truly Amazing Feats of Facial Hair That Are Picture Perfect By Dave Mead
Sometimes drowning in the thickness of my own beard, when it’s shaved off I can disappear. Going out without my beard is like going out as a new person. People who ‘know’ me don’t recognize me, others don’t give me the time of day without the burly frame on my face. Others just stare. No matter what the reaction, my facial hair has an impact.
Some are drawn to it, and some fear the beard. No matter what the case, facial hair has a life of its own.
In this amazing collection of photos taken at the World Beard & Moustache Championship, in 2009, Dave Mead traveled to the competition being held in Anchorage, Alaska. These photos are currently on display in Portland, Oregon. For more details visit the original article on NPR.
The photos truly speak for themselves.
