Artist Drak Spirit is the photographer who captured these rugged male portraits that highlight and accentuate each individual characteristics on the men's faces through lighting contrasts. The black and white images reveal a darker side to each face.

Through the use of online photo editing, the images have been enhanced to present an even more striking contrast, which displays every facial hair follicle and allows the viewer to peer directly into the eyes of each man.

The photographer captures the rugged male portraits through various view points including head-on images that reveal the entire front of the face. Other images are slightly off-center and show the profile of the man's face. Some of the men are photographed while they are smoking, which adds a mystical and harsh element to the image while other men are simply gazing into the lens of the camera.
