Barber Surgeon by haggleman Barber Surgeon by haggleman
Taken by my Father on his trip to Shanghai, in a marketplace where he spotted a barber doing his thing in the streets. You'll be surprised at what you can find in the markets over there.

Meant as a spontaneous shot, which turned out to be quite "artistic" (as he put it) in the end.

The title is a play on the origins of barbers in the Middle Ages, where they were also medical practicioners.

Your father did a really good job (as did you on the CS3). This is a really cool picture. Makes me think about how, despite how much we like to think of ourselves as "civilized", there's something archaic and primal about being covered with a sheet and having your face/hair cut. :P

Haha cheers! I'm it made you think and that you like it :)

The thing I like most about this shot is that its just about these two - the barber and the customer and the interactions between them. I think this reflects the interactions between an actual barber, as it is just about you and the barber, no-one else in the waiting room etc, which is what I feel this capture means.

And I have no idea how he got the shot in such a busy market. ;P

Thanks for your comment, much appreciated!
