Mr. Italo is widely recognized among our group of photographers as a master of impromptu portraiture. He has an amazing knack for capturing a person’s personality and essence in the blink of an eye. I suspect it’s largely due to his uncanny ability to engage people in conversation, no matter if they are friends or complete strangers.

The earlier discussion around barbers led him to send me a portrait of his barber of 53 years!!!! I’ve used him myself on-and-off for a few years but unfortunately, his location is far from my normal stomping grounds.

A great barber in an absolutely marvelous shop that has remained unchanged since the ’50’s.
