The World Beard and Moustache Championships are a celebration of those who have braved the ridicule and traditional grooming norms in hopes to achieve the look of that of Stalley or maybe even a Russ Bengtson. Photographer Matthew Rainwaters visited the competition a few years back and compiled a series of portraits for his photo book, Beard. Check out this video featuring footage from The World Beard and Moustache Championship and hear from Matthew in his own words. [ChronicleBooks]
