Barber Shop at Carrer Casanova 96, Barcelona

Don't ask me why but pictures of barber shops have a certain something. Maybe because both client and barber look so concentrated, the client telling him the story of his life in a sort of confessional with no curtains or lattice partition. The barber doing his job with an eye on the haircut and his mind on his client's speech or at least that's what it seems since they never lose track. Everybody knows that barbers are a blend of priest with psychologist. My God, the things you get to confess to your barber. This barbershop in particular you will find at carrer Casanova, 96 in Barcelona. 

Update 11/09/2021: I see the picture got to be popular at the owner's website snippet on Google. That's the best that can happen to a photograph, to be useful and provide a message. Now after some years I still love this one. Generally I hate most of my pictures after some time! Here's  Lucena's Barbers link in case you wanna know the place and confess a little!


  1. A good reminder that I should visit my barber next week. We often talk about my photography and some of his hobbies, he is building a house this year and I will probably try to document that.

  2. Interesting "action shot". I like daily life/ work places.

  3. It is a marvelous view into the barber shop. I have always thought of barber as being a proud profession, clean and serious. This image shows what I have felt.

  4. Oh very well done! One of those in-temporal photos! I must confess, I also have a thing for barber pics.

  5. Thanks for the recommendation. Looking for a barber for my husband. We'll be traveling to Bcn from CT.
