MAN . A LIFE WELL DRESSED
T H E S E R I E S
This series is an exploration of the life influences of creative professionals through genuine dialogue, the stories they have shared and the art of photography.
We believe to have created an intersection of intellect of style. We sought not just to acknowledge these gentlemen for their unique sartorial expressions but also acknowledge who these gentlemen are as MEN through five questions centered around the traits of being Well Thought, Well Read, Well Spoken, Well Groomed and Well Dressed.
At the the conclusion of each interview, photographs are crafted to capture telling images and portraits of each MAN. Each gentleman's portrait combined with each interview tells a complete story of A Life Well Dressed.
