I love the attitude of this photo! The fact that the eyebrow bridges the gap, so to speak, really keeps the model from looking overly plucked and preened like a topiary shrub (the way many men do in these types of shots). The image is reminiscent of Frida Kahlo in that respect. It's really a perfect blend of cool, austere lighting and an earthy realism.
Wwell, i don't mind the unibrow...i kinda want to tickle it, heehee. Russian, huh? My first guess would have been Turkish. Very handsome, and the lighting and subtle makeup totally works with his face. Beautiful
