Matthew Rainwaters was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, which is the part of Los Angeles nobody likes to talk about. and made this series called Beardfolio
He traveled to Anchorage in May of ’09 and he photographed everyone as they were done competing. Everything was shot in one day but took months to edit through. I probably have about 85 portraits that I really think are great and maybe an additional 200 that are still sitting unretouched on my hard drive’.
JUST LOVELY… AND SO INDIVIDUAL
