Beardfolio: In 2009, Texan photographer Matthew Rainwaters shot the strange and wonderful contestants of the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Anchorage, Alaska. Described as “a magnificent showcase of chops, bristles and whiskers,” the images were finally compiled into book form. The resulting photobook, “Beard,” is now out from Chronicle. For those of us whose boyfriends are embarking on annual facial hair experiments (under the pretense that it’s “warmer”), looks like we have at least one Christmas gift taken care of.
