About TYS


Thousand Yard Style is a study of man, as in mankind.

Its not a defense, or code for masculinity but instead an unblinking study of it’s nature.

These works arise from the belief that style is never without substance: the product of cultivating a harmonious knowledge of self.

(& no study of men can be without women, as they are the fountainhead of beauty in this world)
