It doesn´t look very comfortable- do they never use chairs? I like the picture a lot, strong impression, I don´t like the shoes cut as they are.
Have a nice day Sandra

just great :)

Anastasya Ivanova, 11.02.2006 at 14:03h

hmm...nice haircutting ... maybe with two bricks being piled up there as a chair will make customers more comfortable. Feel amazed and fresh to see a part of their lives, a very great work you made.

Sergio Pessolano, 11.02.2006 at 14:12h

Thank you for visiting and commenting.
@Sandra, @Anastasya: in India this is the most common sitting way. They can "sitting" in that position for many and many hours.

Gráfica escena, por lo que parece, muy cotidiana por allí
Saluti Sergio

Great documentary picture, nicely treated in B&W.
Agreed with Sergio: They can do also so many things in that position, This position is also good while eating food, stomach is pressed and always little space left after the meals. This will help you from over eating.

Sarah Burg, 11.02.2006 at 15:17h

fascinating picture - not only the haircut but also his position - I think many of us are no longer capable of doing this because we have sat on chairs from the word go - a shame really - best wishes, sarah

Cees Kuijs, 12.02.2006 at 9:26h

A great and fantastic picture. It looks like that the barber didn`t mention you. Good job, don`t disturb him in his job :-)))) Great documentary picture.
Greetings, Cees

Ron Couwenberg, 12.02.2006 at 12:11h

Very intense and powerfull moment of action.

Rob Brydon, 12.02.2006 at 12:54h

I couldn't sit like that if I tried and I don't think I would like a razor cut either. Very good doco image Sergio. I think the B and W enhances the situation nicely..Cheers..Rob (NZ)

Sarah Burg, 12.02.2006 at 14:54h

@Max : I'm not convinced - unless one has hours every day to practice! Or have you personal experience?

Marc Erpelding, 12.02.2006 at 17:55h

Wonderful scene!
Kind regards, Marc

Frank Cecconi, 13.02.2006 at 1:05h

I'm running out of superlatives to praise your work, Sergio. ;-)
Every single time I look at one of yours I'm temped to say "THIS is your best one". However, every single one is the best one (to me) at the time appointed...
