As some of you may remember, few months ago, I was looking for men to participate in my new photographic project. The criteria were strict, the outcome – vague: you needed to 1) have or be willing to grow a mustache 2) be prepared to shave it in a shape I would ask you to 3) be ready to be photographed with your new look in a place that has significance to you.
Since then, I received numerous messages (mainly from curious ladies, rather than gentlemen willing to take part), asking about the project, so I decided to share first results, partially to satisfy your curiosity, partially to get feedback on the work in its early stages.
Basically, I am interested to explore how some visual features become associated with a certain historical figure and what are the boundaries outside of which this is no longer true. For that purpose, I chose Hitler and his iconic mustache and invited men of different ages and cultural and social background to pose for a portrait…
This is an ongoing project and I am interested in both, your feedback and willingness to take part, so leave comment below or get in touch via e-mail.
