NEW: Prints of the above photo now available!

James is a hairdresser near where I live in Saint Josse, Brussels.
If you wish, you can view a detail and other pics here.

In my opinion, the most moving part of this picture is definitely
the worn-out floor around the chair because it shows the exact
spot where James has been walking in circle since many years.

PS: I rotated the photo horizontally after editing it so that the
words "James Coiffure" can be easily read.

Is it normal that you can read the shop's title from the inside? O.o

My goodness...It's very hard to distinguished this as a photograph or not. It looks like a sketch,but at the same time it's not. I'm so amazed by your talent Ben! I want your talent! I love your Pencil Vs. Camera pictures a lot!

masterpiece in editing, wonderfully graphical result! the shot is stunning to begin with, giving the tiles a great part of the composition, intensifying the graphical effect. it's amazing to see this every day scene of a working day turning into an everlasting masterpiece :love:

When I first spotted this in the most popular page I mistook it for a realistic graphite drawing due to the name being inverted. Along with the lighting the hues just added to my misinterpretaion of what I saw, it is a great photograph, excellent piece.
