In 2014, French photographer Franck Bohbot spent a year documenting New York’s various barbershops, and the barbers that have turned them into beloved institutions. His subsequent series Cuts records both the interiors and the owners of these establishments, captured by Bohbot in rare moments of peace and quiet. Depicted in their shops, the barbers become the central focus of these traditional refuges, communities for both the young and old. His subjects are proud, surrounded by a human presence that, although invisible, is an inherent feature in the decor, services offered and the places themselves.
