Photographer's Note

The politeness and interest of this ambushed barber and his equally ambushed customer with me peering through their window demonstrates yet again the willingness of people to participate in the madness of the visiting street photographer in istanbul.

Of course I already had a candid image in the bag before they became aware of me - but there is still a nice element of spontaneity and humour about this one because of the half finished state of the man's shaved face.

I love the proud smile of the man in the chair with his peal earring and the seeming disinterest - almost deference to our relationship of the barber himself.
