I was privileged to once again work with the great folks at the Hippo for this years 2013 "Best Of" issue. The yearly Best Of is where readers vote or write in for their favorite local establishments and people in the Southern New Hampshire area. What I dig most about it is being able to travel around with the Hippo Editor and meet the local winners.
I was once again a recipient of a Hippo award for 2013: Best Visual Artist • Best of the Best. For the past four years I've been voted in either the "Best of the Best" or the "Runner Up" category and I'm so excited that people are taking the time to write my name down on the ballet; I hope it means people respond to my work.
We covered a lot of locations this year, but the one I had the most fun photographing was Lucky's Barbershop in Concord NH. These guys rule. Everything about them and their barbershop just oozed coolness; from the rockabilly playing on the stereo to the vintage signs hanging on the walls. I was also really impressed that none of the barbers rush through the cuts. They take their time and really chat up with the people coming in for a haircut. I'm actually hoping to get up there eventually and treat myself to a straight razor shave and one of their fantastic cuts - just so I can feel how a real traditional barber joint does it.
