Will It Beard by Stacy Thiot

View all 14 Photos

Photographer Stacy Thiot’s quirky Tumblr project, Will It Beard, emphasizes the texture and holding power of facial hair. Using her husband as a model, Thiot embeds a half dozen or more household objects in his beard and snaps a close-up. The props include toothpicks, cocktail umbrellas, crayons, uncooked spaghetti, Dum Dums suckers, straws, razors, lit incense, q-tips, birthday candles, and bow ties. Whimsical, if sometimes a little frightening, the images could be their own chapter in Justin James Muir’s A Book of Beards.
