I don’t know why, but decades ago, I started photographing barbershops around the world. When I traveled, I looked for barbershops, and I also photographed dentists and the Marlboro Man. It’s an odd assortment of things to photograph, I know, but it’s what I’ve done.
Why barbershops? They are everywhere. In every country, in every village. Sometimes indoors, sometimes on the street. A family member might cut hair. A barber might do it. The experience is universal.
In this portfolio are photographs of barbershops in India, Laos, Ecuador, Spain, Ethiopia and the United States. At some point, I will scan my earlier work, and you will see barbershops from many other places. Maybe you will see the Marlboro Man and dentists too.
