16 Jul Dudes with Beards | Bernard Brand
Ranging from the manicured to the monstrous, facial hair is the focus in freelance photographer and beard-bearer himself Bernard Brand’s latest body of work, Dudes with Beards. Bernard debuted the series of beautifully-lit portraits at an exhibition in Pretoria over the weekend.
He says, “Dudes with Beards was my attempt at getting off my ass and putting myself out there; in the path of strangers (and friends), crawling out of my shell and overcoming the crippling shyness of approaching people and striking up a conversation.”
As it is now the series consists of a selection of 18 considered photographs but Bernard might carry on adding to it over time.
