The two color images were made at a barbershop called Mr. T’s that was located 30 miles outside Chicago.

Although it looks like you’re peering through a 1960’s barbershop

window, I made the two color images in 2013.

 

Mr. T’s Barbershop is no longer in business.

I only had my hair cut there once but I really liked the look of the shop – the colors.

When I walked in the barber there told me I had  a great head of hair, then gave me a haircut

that made me look a little like a young Darren Stevens (Dick Sargent) from the Bewitched television show.

“All things change except barbers, the ways of barbers, and the surroundings of barbers.
These never change. What one experiences in a barber’s shop the first time he enters
one is what he always  experiences in barbers’ shops afterward till the end of his days…”
