Life in Cuba - Kevin Mohatt

It could just be me, but it seems like there are more barbershops in downtown Havana than in most cities. I often wonder if to Cubans, fashion is more about hairstyle than all else. The odd thing about these barbershops is that they seem to appear and disappear. I would pass by a barbershop and make a mental note to return but when I’d later go back to get some shots, there would be no memory of it -no signage, no red and blue pole swirling around. So when I peeked into this barbershop from the street and saw this man sitting in the chair with deep green eyes and such an intriguing face, I knew not to miss my opportunity.
