Electronics giant Philips has a fair bit of money invested in personal grooming products. Which may explain why it has partnered with photographer Daniel Boud to create Beards of Sydney, a site dedicated to Sydney-based facial hair.

With everything from pencil moustaches to efforts that would make Gandalf the Grey proud, the site is a testament to man’s ability to grow hair on their face. Boud’s photography captures the spirit of each hair follicle, in a way that even the most steadfast clean-shaven man would admire.

If you’re looking fr ideas on how to take your own beard to the next level, it’s well worth checking out. You can even submit your own beards to the Tumblr site, should you feel the need to celebrate your own feats on manliness.
