Imitating (and emulating) great masters of photography: another example

This example in the attempt to emulate great masters of photography comes from a great photograph of Walker Evans made in 1936 of a negro barber shop in the interior of Atlanta-USA.
I took photos of Mr. Chiquinho nowadays a 98-years old barber in São Carlos-SP, Brazil in 2016 and made a comparison of my photo and the classic, world-renowned photo of Walker Evans. The contexts of the two photos are totally different but the result is what matters in this case and I liked what I saw. I hope you like it too.
A happy Sunday! Here in Brazil it’s Mother’s Day and I take this opportunity to congratulate all mothers in Brazil and the world !!!

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
