Today we are bringing to you the awesome Maximilien Letek who has done this wonderful project on beards!
A beard is the ultimate milestone of reaching male adulthood. Whilst not every male who can bare one does, those who take the time and dedication required to grow them fascinate me. Over the course of history, beards and moustaches have been given various attributes from wisdom, sexual virility to masculinity, but also some derogatory associations such lack of cleanliness, loss refinement, Bohemia and more. Throughout time and cultures, facial hair has always been used as means of male expression. My on-going project, ‘Men with Beards’ aims to create a snapshot of the diversity in the modern beard world.
Thanks eyesforwardmagazine for publishing my work!
