Barber Shop – A complicated image

Barber Shop

Just another day at this one-man barber shop in Oaxaca Mexico. Do people really pick their haircuts from a poster?

I will never be accused of making simple photographs. Actually, it is not in my nature to do anything simply. This image flirts with danger, but my eye never leaves the frame.


Free enterprise in Cuba means having your own barber shop in the hallway of your apartment building. This Barber Shop and Shoe Repair is on the busy Obispo Street in Havana. After some joking with the Americans and their cameras, the barber went back to his concentrated work under the watchful eyes of Che, Fidel, and Raul.
