Portraits of Hemingway Look-Alikes

Hemingway Look-Alikes

“Becoming Hemingway” is a portrait series of men who look like Ernest Hemingway by photographer Henry Hargreaves. The photos are modeled after the iconic portrait of Hemingway by Yousuf Karsh. The men are all members of the Hemingway Look-Alike Society, an organization that stages an annual contest in Key West to select the ultimate Hemingway look-alike from a competitive lineup of bearded men. You can see every winner of the contest since it started in 1981 on the society website and at Deadspin.
