It’s that time of year again! Time to enjoy the results of the 2014 World Beard and Moustache Championships. For the annual event, men flock to the competition to show off their amazing facial hair designs. The website explains, “From delicate Dali moustaches to anything-goes full beard freestyles and medal-worthy mutton chops, this competition represents the full spectrum of beard and mustache art with 18 categories.”
This year, Las Vegas-based commercial photographer Greg Anderson traveled to Portland, Oregon to document the many charming and captivating faces throughout the event. The wide variety of world class beards and moustaches is the result of a strong dedication that the participants have to the craft. Each subject’s personality shines through in appearance, outfits, and gestures, and Anderson captures a lively spirit that emanates from each playful portrait.
