The beard is by no means a new trend in men's style, but since moving to London a few months ago, it's one that has stood out for me more than any other. Over the past few years, the beard has re-established itself as the ultimate accessory for the modern gentleman.
My fascination with the beard peaked last month, partially due to my own inability to grow a face of full handsome hair, and so I've set myself a new challenge. Every day for 100 days, I will attempt to find a new beard to photograph. I'm now on day 4 and you can follow my progress on 100Beards.Tumblr.com.
Darren, a dancer based in East London, is the first subject of my new project. Not only has he got a great beard, but the boy got style.
