When French photographer Franck Bohbot moved to New York City, he set out to photograph what was in plain sight – the things we all see, but never give a second thought. Heavily influenced by Robert Frank’s The Americans, Bohbot sought after real people in their natural environments. Intrigued by the local barbershops he would stumble across in every neighborhood he passed through, he decided to take on the barber as his subject, in what would become his series Cuts.
