American Faces – #13

 

AmericanFaces13American Faces #13

A recent trip to Anoka yielded an unplanned meeting on the sidewalk with my subject Mark U.  He’s the owner and barber at Cowboy Mel’s in Anoka, MN.

I was first captivated by his enormous (and enviable) beard, and then by the barbershop full of cowboy paraphernalia, skulls and classic barbershop chairs. This warm toned shop and Mark’s facial hair made for a wonderfully memorable shoot.

American Faces – Perfect 10

American Faces – No.10

A good day always involves a stop into a local coffee shop.    After our morning shoot, Scott Whitman and I stopped in to  Avant Garden in Anoka.  I could not have scripted a better scene to unfold: a young musician at the coffee bar playing his guitar. DerekCallender_0001LRThe problem: my camera was back in the car. I quickly jogged to the car and returned with camera in hand. I captured a quick photo with his back turned to me, then approached the friendly musician, Derek, and asked if I might take a few shots as he gave a casual impromptu performance for his coffee-drinking audience.

American Faces No. 10 is one of my favorite shots from this raw moment.
