Not all men with beards can be classified into a single category. There are many different types of facial hair styles and different types of personalities who wear them.

In his series 'Of Beards and Men,' photographer Joseph Daniel Robert Oleary tries to capture the essence of each man and his facial hair, showing how their beards become a part of their identities. Often associated with rugged men or hipsters, facial hair can be found on a whole range of characters including those two types, as demonstrated in Oleary's project.

Trimming styles and shapes range drastically from man to man, some finding humor in the photo shoot, others putting on a more serious face. Anyone interested in seeing various men with beards will enjoy this series.
