Men's facial hair has been the subject of much interest as of late and The Postichery Collection continues this fascination. Between the recent Movember events and eccentric moustache styling such as those found in the photo series Beardfolio by Matt Rainwaters, it should come as no surprise that an even more artistic endeavor involving facial hair would come about.

Created by photographer Julian Wolkenstein in collaboration with creative Paul Sharp, The Postichery Collection centers around vintage-like portraits of manly men whose facial hair happens to be fake. In its place are beards and moustaches made out of color tissues, which were handmade by technical adviser Tamara Maynes.

The Postichery Collection is part of the Slow Photography Movement that has been documented for the Museum of Helsinki Publication, which is a limited-edition catalogue designed by Hampus Jageland. Stats for Faux Facial Hair Photography Trending: Older & Buzzing
