Jonathan Daniel Pryce, a British Freelance photographer, blogger and social media consultant did a yeoman’s job of chronicling the beards of the modern gentleman in a Tumblr project he calls 100 Beards, 100 Days. But why?
“Over the past few years, the beard has re-established itself as the ultimate accessory for the modern gentleman. To document this, every day for 100 days I photographed a new beard on the streets of London. From big and bushy to trendy and trimmed, I found men from all cultures and creeds who signed up to the cult of the beard.”
For 100 days, from July 1st to October 8th 2012 he posted images of gentleman beards. The project was so successful that after the 100 days were up, he decided to continue. As of September 14, 2013 he was up to #152. And now there is a book (it’s first edition sold out, but there may be a 2nd edition available soon. Preorder here).
