What is it about barbershops that enticed me back as a customer after a long hiatus at one of the big, franchised, unisex haircut factories? Is it the unmistakable scents of talc and Bay Rum after shave? Or the character and craftsmanship of the antique barber chairs? Maybe the mesmerizing swirl of the barber pole at the shop's entrance? There's definitely something unique and masculine about getting a good old-fashioned haircut at a real barbershop. The images shown here are part of a photo project I started about 10 years ago, and I decided it's time to share some of them. I wanted the photographs to have a vintage feel, so they've been produced with an old sepia-toned retro flavor.
