The Barber’s Yard

The barber’s yard in Trench Town. (1996)

This is one of my favorite photos from Kingston for several reasons. For me black & white photography is all about light, shadow and texture. In this photograph you have the lines created by all the different zinc and wood panels combined with the harsh sunlight creating deep shadows and highlighting the textures. The photo also shows many elements of daily life in downtown Kingston, the car wheel hub for cooking, the slippers outside the door, the zinc, the water bucket and the wash basin.
