Captured by Craig McDean and styled by Jason Rider, this Brad Pitt photo series plays with vintage motifs.

Done for The New York Times' cover story, the images show the actor in a variety of black clothing that adds to its simplistic aesthetic well. When he's shown with rolled-up sleeves, the Brad Pitt photo series exposes some of his lesser-seen tattoos as well, with the unique designs marking his forearms.

While the majority are black and white, others show the actor is full color through a slightly subdued lens, which is complemented by the monochrome workwear and crew neck sweater that he wears. The images went along with a humorous and telling interview that he gave to The New York Times, in addition to the a passage reading by the actor from 'A Brief History of Seven Killings' by Marlon James.
