Back to the barber
The collection “Back to the barber” is composed of current and very male works, looking for highly debugged and very accurate images, using techniques from horse-trading or barbering.
The machine-based techniques, razor empties and scissors on paint have been given preference because they represent our trade most.
Our first collection, “Back to the barber”, is the letter of presentation of the techniques and works we use in La Barberia de Gràcia, which drink directly from the essence of traditional male hairdressing, but reinterpreted and updated in the present era.
I have tried to show the work that distinguishes us from the barbers of the other hairdressers, very simple lines, very accurate gradients, very well worked endings, with the utmost care for the details to achieve very male air. I did not want to divert the viewer’s attention into unnecessary artifices, I fled from any superfluous ornament so that all the prominence would fall into the cutting.
The collection has been made in black and white, to enhance the male style.
We believe that the barber shop is booming and that our trade is gradually regaining the prestige that until recently it had lost. I feel that I am a member of a whole new generation of professionals, passionate about our work, who share concerns.
