Vintage photos have a special charm. I always start thinking what’s the story behind.

A junior philosopher…i’ll let my imagination get the better of me and think he’s a young Albert Camus.
December 8, 2012 at 9:43 pm
As I would look at myself.
December 8, 2012 at 9:56 pm
Oh look, no socks, Scott…….go for it! Verified!
December 8, 2012 at 10:42 pm

Text book rigging my friends! His choice of socks was a perfect one…look at the way it keeps the eyes moving up smoothly, all the way to his face! Great composition from photographer’s perspective, too!
December 9, 2012 at 9:29 am
Beautiful photo! I love looking at vintage photographs, my grandma has an amazing collection of them!

Tell me more about his history I am intrigued!

Love this. Sure, the clothes are great, but I am most captured by the eyes and expression. They whisper secrets of a time that I’ve never known.
December 9, 2012 at 9:09 pm
Funny the pants r flood length..what affected guy wear now..i wonder if his is a mistake and in toooo short but i love how he look all dress up for church
December 10, 2012 at 1:40 am
What stunning, serious and perfect style and expression. I wish people dressed like this today.
Don’t know about Africa, but he could have very well fitted in the cubism periods of Prague with this tie and socks.
December 10, 2012 at 4:54 am
I wish I could know more about when and where in North Africa this was taken and who the photographer was.. fascinating. Was he posing for a formal portrait or is this a candid capture?
This reminds me of this exhibit in a NY gallery a few years ago: http://www.westwoodgallery.com/past_mansouri.html

It’s amazing the waist on the jacket is so high and the trousers so short – very interesting proportions.

Very young Vito Corleone-esque. Absolute class!
