DESCRIPTION

A very personal portrait of close-friend, barber and running partner, Doug Howie.

The idea behind this portrait was to capture Doug in a very intimate and vulnerable moment. Decades of experience have left Doug with countless stories and close relationships, but most of these are limited to fifteen minute sessions every three-to-six weeks. This piece references his years mastering his craft and hints at the sadness of a man well into the twilight of his working life.
