Meet Mr. Jimmy Niggles and his beard ‘Barry’. This Aussie with the looks of a grizzly bear has a special story to tell about his beard.
Portrait photographer Mr. Elbank, shot Jimmy and his beard ‘Barry’ bringing out every blemish and freckle with a unique use of lighting. The story behind his beard is that back in 2009, a dear mate of Jimmy’s found a mole on his neck that turned out to be melanoma. A few months later he tragically passed away. Since then, Jimmy’s and his mates started Beard Season and he has been growing his beard ever since.
It’s the thought behind the beard that counts! Be sure to check out Jimmy’s site: This is Beard.
