Laurent Muschel - Tropical Hair Salons
|Publisher||Lecturis / Saiid/smale|
Laurent Muschel has travelled all over the tropics, photographing the intimacy surrounding this special world of hair salons. The series took off in the “Afro part” of Brussels, called Matonge (the name comes from a surrounding in Kinshasa) and then continued in East and West Africa: Addis Abeba and Shire (Ethiopia), Abidjan and Grand Bassam (Ivory Coast), Accra (Ghana), and Banjul (Gambia). The journey was accompanied by many short cuts and extensions along the way. Laurent Muschel likes to photograph the details and small gestures, inviting us to come closer and explore further.
