mingo's barber shop

I've been working on a still documentary for the for the past few months and will continue to do so at least throughout the summer. I probably will share some photographs along the journey. I kinda have an idea and a vision, so we will see where the wind blows me with this one.

Mingo's is a barber shop that is located at the bottom of Beatties Ford Rd. where it turns to Trade St. The owner of Mingo's is a young gentleman who's grandfather was the original owner of the shop and handed it down to him. He's the barber in the 3rd shot.

I thoroughly enjoyed photographing inside this shop because I am so much more drawn to things and places that have a history and a story in its aesthetics. Places like this give me a sense of nostalgia, although from a time period before my own and one I never experienced, it feels like home and I get lost there. I wish I was there.

  1. I looooooove this! Can't wait to see more. If you could capture "tradition" in an image, you did it.
