How gorgeous! The texture and color patterns, the way the graffiti mimics the old fan leading the eye toward the other old retail objects within. The barber's yellow smock! All that blue and aqua, the customer's crew socks. Love this, thank you!
Those chairs must be really old. I've seen similar red chairs in an old barber shop on a small Greek island. The chair, the mosaic on the floor…on the opposite side of the world but not too far apparently. Fascinating.
I am disquieted by this photo. Although the customer strikes a relaxed pose, there is some inherent tension in the way the two men interact. And the scene: clean, but somehow dirty; small, but somehow cavernous. The striplights are evocative of a clinical operation, but they cast a cold light on what was undoubtedly a warm scene. Excellently caputred shot.
I love the color in this photo…who would have thought that a picture of an old barber shop would look so interesting…The blue of the chairs is definitely a focal point…love it :) http://thebuzzonfashion.blogspot.com
this is absolutely beautiful. most westerners would probably never want to step foot in a shop that looks like that, but it just looks so warm with the turquoise, chocolate brown, peridot green and bright white towels. a kind of faded elegance. thank you sart.
This is one (of many) reasons Brazil is my next stop in my travels. They aren't afraid of bold colours, or boldness in living life in general. When I lived in Bondi, my Brazillian housemate wore a skimpy zebra-print bikini with lime trim without fear. I (Melbournian, afflicted with a love of black and grey) wouldn't even contemplate wearing such a garment, but she pulled it off. Her confidence made what would look trashy on anyone else look beautiful and almost elegant.
Haha! I love the barber shop. It's sad, when I was in America, I was desperately looking for such a place. I never shave at home, always at the barbers, and best of all I do it for a dollar here in India, and they do a darn good job of it.

amazing. the colors, the composition, the subject… i love how the man in the chair in running shoes and white socks, even with a slight paunch, but is taking care enough to get a barber's shave. awesome.
a picture is worth a thousand words…especially this one.
My eyes were roaming all over this gorgeous story-telling photograph.
So much detail everywhere you look — from the old fan, the unusual exposed fluorescent light fixture, the amazing blue of the barber chair, the richer teal hues on the walls, the grafitti on the outer wall, the cracked blue tile at the front of the barbershop…the reds on the wood panels…..even the reflection from the mirror is a trippy visual. Thank you!
This photo made so grateful. All the other pictures from Rio are great, but this is the only one that made me say `this is Brazil`. It was very nice to see photos aside the Rio fashion scene and people, thank you so much.
