Cool photograph. His haircut looks sooo classic. But with the golden teeth, it makes everything different.

Gold tooth? Cool!

If it wasn’t for the golden tooth and coat this photo could have been from 50 years ago, love that!

Isn’t he the man photographed in black and white on July 26th, 2012 ? That photo got 190 some comments ! I thought he looked like a character from “Brideshead revisited”.

A golden tooth for the Golden Years vibe of this portrait :-)

I am pulled right into this photograph. There is something so intriguing about it. And it isn’t the fact that he used to have spacers, that he has a gold tooth, and that his hair is straight out of a barbershop from the 1950′s or possibly 20′s, but the energy and the soul that you managed to capture in the smile, the eyes, the seemingly well groomed nails. Again, I want to know more. I love that your portraits break with convention, as I cannot assume or know anything about this gentleman by his choice in clothing, or anything else for that matter. Who is he, what does he do, what is his story. Isn’t that what a great photographer and story teller is supposed to do? :)

I am not a fan of gold tooth but I am a fan of everybody who’s smiles.

The bunny pin makes me think I dislike.

The gold (?) tooth and untamed fur of his jacket jump out at me, but then you can see the finer details like his slicked hair with the perfect parting and his well groomed nails. Such great contrast!
Yet another seemingly faultless photograph.

Nice one Nate!

The light, the posing (hands and turn of head and body) and the staging remind me of photographs from 1900, but in his face (like in most portraits in this series) you can see the interaction with the photographer – it doesn’t seem mask-like like a lot of historic portraits do (because of the posing), but really vivid. You gave life to a specific genre of photography in two ways. Beautiful!

…and there is the hole on the ear, well, or a scare, telling us…
well, don’t know exactly what actually….
excellent portraiture anyway.
Even the model, before knowing the result, seem to enjoy it :)
