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 !!!
