Very approachable, jolly surrealism, I love the inclusion of the doll sitting quietly in the corner of the frame. You register the extrovert barber first, but then the doll comes to dominate the image.

This is a great shot. I love portraits with context and this really captures a strange world. Excellent exposure, too...
