Cosmo, 182 Caledonian Road, Borough of Islington, London N1, 2002 & 2012 • Ah, the static world of the traditional barber. I photographed this in 2002 (top) and 2012 (bottom) and it barely changed inbetween, bar a few more dead plants and a slight rearrangement of the faded photos. It’s still there, but they’ve now cleared the window out.
