The Chronicles of Follicles - Chapter 2

MINT is proud to host a photography series by Travis and Nate Dorn, that chronicles the stories of a few select men, with beards, doing "man-things" like digging a hole, cutting hair, taming fire, or eating steak in the bathtub. The photos are dramatically shot, fun and maybe even a little disturbing. The subjects are men with notable beards. Some are in well-know bands, others are great filmmakers, editors, outlaws, or famous artists.

Accolades for "The Chronicles of Follicles"(aka the Man-Beard photo project):

The overall series received an Honorable Mention in the 2009 International Photography Awards (out of 18,000 submissions worldwide).

"The Cult Leader" photo received a top Nominee title in the 4th Annual Photography Masters Cup Color Awards (another international competition).
P.S. The piece won in the "Nude Category".

Please join us for a fun night of community, networking, and some "Dorn-Good" art!
