The world of Moustaches & Glasses makes you part of a very special black-and-white story where the line between reality and the photo so fine that you can barely feel it. Our philosophy is simple: we are a keepers of old school straight and truthful photography. That is why we represent a bright and well recognizable genre of Straight Photography. Pictures made in this technic, absolutely exclude preliminary statement of a shot and the following retouch. The drawing attention composition of a shot is reached only at the expense of a phenomenon of "Turning-point", the term once introduced by great Henri Cartier - Bresson.
