This is Mr Jimmy Niggles / Mr Elbank


Meet Mr Jimmy Niggles, an Aussie with a craft of a grizzly bear. Portrait photographer Mr Elbank, along with the rest of his portraits, shot Jimmy and his beard Barry bringing out every blemish and freckle with a unique use of lighting. Not only was I impressed with the photography, but I know every girl wants that big grizzly bear to cuddle up to during these winter months. The story behind his beard is that back in 2009, a dear mate of Jimmy’s found a mole on his neck that turned out to be melanoma. A few months later he tragically passed away. Since then, Jimmy’s and his mates started Beard Season and he has been growing his beard ever since. Check out Jimmy’s site This is Beard — via Trendland
