14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
A Barbershop Moment

Back at the “Barbershop in a Library” event at the West Englewood library, I was fortunate to document this setting. A group counseling session blended with free barber services provided by the West Englewood staff and members from Longevity Barber Lounge on 68th and Ashland. Owner of Longevity (K.C.) is shown in a classic barbershop moment with a member of the community. This timeless shot is highlighted more by the distinct red tie and buttoned up shirt that could mirror any time period throughout American history.
