Andrea Marcassini is photographed by Michele Ercolani in this striking black-and-white story for the new issue of TOH! The handsome Italian model exudes a casual confidence in these photos, which tease us with glimpses of his perfectly sculpted body as he twists and turns to reveal a different set of muscles you probably never knew existed.
His body is a work of art, and one that wouldn't look out of place in a museum exhibit celebrating the male form. But it is Andrea's impressive beard that is proper killing me. It is a monstrous creation that If I'm honest, doesn't quite fit right with the rest of him. And yet, I can't quite imagine him without it. Nor am I ready to.
