In late 2013 I took a job right outside of Seattle’s Pioneer Square. Along my walk path from my Chinatown apartment to this new job were a couple Barbershops. Each time I walked by these shops I came to appreciate more and more this charismatic and photogenic styling of an old school meets new school vibe these guys had going on. I wanted to photograph them and their shop. But before I knew it my time in Seattle ran out. // After arriving back in Anchorage, I still wanted to do a photo-journalistic set of a Barbershop and I couldn’t think of a better place or a more talented group of individuals than the group at Maritza’s Barbershop. I contacted the shop and they were down with the idea and so I showed up and got to shoot around for 45 minutes or so before getting hooked up with a fresh cut and heading out.
