Vintage Photos: "don't give me the high-hat"

Do you know anything about this photo? Is it even vintage?

all things amazing: random

Thanks to everyone who has answered my question. In the photo is the recently deceased Sebastian Horsley. We can conclude that it is a non-vintage photo. If someone knows of the photographer I'd like to add that information...

It must be. It has a Tim Walker feel to it, but then he would do it in color. I don't know why I expect there to be a rabbit in somewhere in the picture too. Super cool picture! :-)

If the above link is correct, this is a contemporary photo of an artist named Sebastian Horsley, who died in June. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebastian_Horsley

It must be vintage. Even though there is a Tim Walker feel to it, only he works in color. And somehow I can't help looking for a rabbit in the picture...

No! It's not vintage. That's a picture of the (very) recently-deceased, self-styled dandy, Sebastian Horsley:

It seems he was a very sad chap.

It looks exactly like Michael C. Hall from Dexter! I loved him in Six Feet Under before that.

Not a vintage image, but may be vintage technique. It is of Sebastian Horsley - http://rosecallahan.blogspot.com/search/label/Sebastian%20Horsley
